flydubai expands network with the launch of three seasonal routes



To cope up with the demand from travellers during the summer, flydubai has launched three seasonal routes in addition to its popular summer destinations for passengers from Dubai and across the region. Batumi in Georgia, Qabala in Azerbaijan and Tivat in Montenegro will operate from June to September 2017, offering popular seaside resorts, beautiful mountain vistas and mild climates. flydubai will be the first carrier to offer direct flights from the UAE to Qabala and Tivat, and the first from Dubai to Batumi. UAE nationals and residents entering Batumi and Tivat will receive a Visa on Arrival, while GCC residents entering Batumi will receive a Visa on Arrival.

Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer at flydubai said, “There is strong demand for affordable and off-the-beaten track holiday destinations and we look forward to offering our passengers a variety of unique and exciting options,” he added.

In addition to its seasonal offerings, flydubai offers passengers a variety of popular leisure destinations that reflects the diversity of its network. For those seeking a city break, flydubai offers passengers the chance to explore a range of cities rich in culture, heritage and activities such as Baku, Bratislava, Istanbul, Prague, Sarajevo, Tbilisi and Yerevan. UAE Nationals and Indian Nationals with a UAE residence visa visiting Yerevan are eligible to receive a Visa on Arrival.

“The decision to launch our summer seasonal routes is a direct response to customer feedback,” said Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President Commercial (UAE, EU, ME, CIS) at flydubai. “With facilitated visa requirements for the residents of the UAE and GCC, it’s a great opportunity for our passengers to enjoy these hidden gems and experience what they have to offer.”

Along with city breaks, the summer season is the ideal time to escape to the beach. flydubai’s flights to Bangkok, Colombo, Maldives and Zanzibar give passengers the chance to experience some of the best beaches and tropical hotspots in the world.

“With the variety of destinations available for passengers, there has never been a better time to explore the flydubai network this summer,” said Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President Commercial (GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) at flydubai. “We continue to offer flexible options for travel, especially for the 62 previously underserved markets we operate to. Along with our product offerings in the air and on the ground, we look forward to more passengers discovering what flydubai has to offer.”
