Ankara becomes the latest destination to join the flydubai network

Dubai-based flydubai to operate two weekly flights to the Turkish capital from 29 July

  

flydubai, the Dubai based airline, has announced the start of a twice-weekly service to Ankara Esenboga International Airport (ESB) from 29 July. Ankara will become flydubai’s second destination in Turkey after Istanbul (IST) which is currently served with a daily flight.

flydubai also added two destinations in Turkey to its seasonal summer schedule. The carrier operates two weekly flights from Terminal 2, Dubai International (DXB) to Milas-Bodrum Airport (BJV) and to Trabzon Airport (TZX) between June and September.

Commenting on the launch of operations, Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer at flydubai, said: “flydubai’s first flight to Turkey landed exactly 11 years ago in Istanbul. We have since grown our network to four unique destinations offering our passengers from the UAE and the region greater choice for the summer and around the year. We look forward to doubling the frequency of our operations to Ankara for the winter schedule as demand for travel continues to gradually grow.”

flydubai will increase its operations to Ankara Esenboga International Airport (ESB) to a four-weekly service from 02 October.

Located in the Anatolian heartland, Ankara is packed with history and culture. From Roman remains to Ottoman castles and citadels, art museums and beautiful green parks, Ankara has a lot to offer visitors as well as being the capital city.

Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, said: “flydubai remains committed to opening up underserved markets and we have grown our network to 97 destinations. The launch of operations to Ankra will provide passengers from the UAE with direct airlinks to the Turkish capital for the first time. We look forward to seeing the demand for travel grow over the summer as more countries open up for international travel. The feedback and demand for both Bodrum and Trabzon have been very positive and we look forward to giving our passengers more options to discover Turkey with the start of flights to Ankara from the end of June.”

With the addition of Ankara, flydubai’s network has grown to 97 destinations in 50 countries. The carrier recently announced the launch of flights to Budapest in Hungary, Ljubljana in Slovenia and to Warsaw, its second point in Poland, from September.

flydubai will operate flights to several seasonal summer routes between June and October such as Batumi in Georgia, Bodrum and Trabzon in Turkey, Mykonos and Santorini in Greece, Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt and Tivat in Montenegro.

flydubai’s passenger experience has been redesigned to enable travel in a safe environment that minimises crew and passenger contact and offers passengers confidence to travel at every step of their journey.
