Flydubai on Monday announced plans to start five new destinations including Indian capital New Delhi and said it will commence daily direct flights to Russian capital Moscow in September.
The low-cost carrier, which launched 17 routes in 2013, said at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) that it will double its network in India with the addition of flights to New Delhi, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram. Kazakhstan will join flydubai’s network for the first time and flights will launch later this year to two destinations Almaty and Shymkent.
“As flydubai approaches its fifth year of operation it has created a network of 74 destinations in 35 countries. Today’s route announcements are a clear demonstration of the important role we are playing in the development of the tourism industry and there remains much opportunity,” Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer of flydubai, said.
Flydubai’s rapid expansion plans continue to focus on destinations within a five hour flying radius from Dubai. Delhi, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram join Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Lucknow to make India the third largest country that flydubai operates to by number of points.
Another market that has become important to flydubai’s network is Russia and last year flydubai doubled its network to eight points. The airline has now become the largest operator out of the UAE to Russia by number of destinations since it marked its first entry to the market in 2010 with the start of flights to Samara and Yekaterinburg.
Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice-president commercial (UAE, EU, ME, CIS) for flydubai, said: “With flydubai’s daily direct flights to Moscow scheduled to start in September 2014, I am pleased to announce that our flights will operate to Vnukovo International Airport and flights are now available for sale. Moreover, our flights to Kazakhstan will give passengers more opportunity to discover this market which offers great potential for trade and tourism,” added Efendi.
These announcements bring the total number of new destinations flydubai announced since the start of the year to nine.
