Flydubai expands

Middle East low-cost carrier Flydubai is to further grow its network in Central and Eastern Europe with new direct services from Dubai to Bucharest in Romania (from 1 October) and Skopje in the Republic of Macedonia (18 October).

The latest growth expands the budget carrier’s reach in the region and wider Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) market to 15 destinations across 10 countries.

Flydubai made its debut in this area in November 2009 when it commenced flights between Dubai and Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.  It has since introduced links to Armenia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Serbia, Turkmenistan and Ukraine and is currently the only scheduled operator flying non-stop from Dubai to Belgrade, Donetsk and Kharkiv.  Latest figures from Dubai Airports revealed a 35% increase in visitors from Central and Eastern Europe during the first four months of 2012 in comparison to the same period last year. www.flydubai.com
