flydubai, the Dubai-based airline, has announced today the launch of additional routes bringing its network to more than 80 destinations. The carrier will grow its network in Russia to 11 points with of the introduction of new services to Moscow Zhukovski International Airport (ZIA) from 12 May, Novosibirsk Tolmachevo International Airport (OVB) from 28 May and Perm International Airport (PEE) from 02 June, while resuming operations to four more points in the market in May.

The carrier also announced the resumption of flights to Bandar Abbas International Airport (BND) from 12 May and Mashhad International Airport (MHD) from 13 May, growing its operations in Iran to five points including Larr (LRR), Shiraz (SYZ) and Tehran (IKA).

flydubai recently announced that it will be operating seasonal flights to Bodrum (BJV) and Trabzon(TZX) in Turkey as well as Batumi (BUS) in Georgia. The carrier is set to restart its seasonal operations to Tivat International Airport (TIV) in Montenegro from 25 June, offering passengers more choice to travel to popular destinations this summer.

Commenting on the announcement, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, said: “It is now 11 years since flydubai’s first flight to Russia.  During this period, we have grown our network in Russia providing direct air links from these key cities in Russia to the UAE; many of which are less than four hours flying time.  We’ve made Dubai much more accessible and at the same time improved connectivity to more than 155 destinations from Dubai’s international aviation hub.  Today, we are pleased to see our operations take off once again as we continue to support trade and travel between the countries.”

Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, added: “flydubai offers convenient, comfortable and reliable services to its passengers whether they choose to travel in Business Class or Economy Class. We recognise that since the pandemic it has not been possible for our customers to travel as much as they would have liked.  The launch of these new points in Russia along with the resumption of flights to a number of destinations on our network will hopefully enable more passengers to travel this summer, with the expectation of countries easing up travel restrictions in line with the growing vaccination efforts around the network.” 

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. The airline has recently introduced an extended multi-risk travel insurance that includes COVID-19 cover to offer passengers greater peace of mind when travelling.

Passengers are required to make sure that they are up to date with the regulations from the IATA Travel Centre and the  IATA destination tracker for their whole journey, and follow the guidance issued by the authorities and the airline. Passengers can also visit the COVID-19 information hub on flydubai.com for more information.
