DUBAI 27 July 2017: Dubai-based airline flydubai announced the addition of three destinations to its Russian network, bringing its presence in the country to ten points.
This autumn, the airline will launch flights to Makhachkala and Voronezh, and resume services to Ufa. Flights from Dubai to Makhachkala and Voronezh will operate twice a week, from 31st October and 29th October, 2017, respectively. Services to Ufa will relaunch on 31st October with three flights a week. This will make flydubai the only UAE-based carrier to offer direct air links on these routes, said Wam.
Commenting on the launch, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said, “Russia has been a key part of flydubai’s network since an early stage in our operations. We entered the market in 2010 and focused on markets that were previously under served from Dubai. Russian passengers recognise the benefits of direct air links and together with our product offering have helped us to successfully grow our service across the country. Today, we are pleased to further expand our footprint as we see a growing demand for travel from Russia to Dubai.”
Along with the new additions, flydubai’s network in Russia includes Kazan, Krasnodar, Mineralnye Vody, Moscow, Rostov-on-Don, Samara and Yekaterinburg.
