Commenting on the latest route announcement, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said: "We have been flying to Pakistan since 2010, and we have seen a consistent demand for our services. We are pleased to make Quetta our fourth destination in Pakistan and it becomes the 14th destination we have announced this year.

As part of its commitment to its operations to Pakistan, flydubai will increase its 3 times weekly service to Multan to daily flights with effect from 26 May. flydubai will then operate 27 flights a week to Pakistan.
"With the launch of our flights to Quetta, we look forward to providing more passengers in Pakistan the opportunity to enjoy flydubai's comfortable onboard services, its award-winning In-Flight Entertainment and the ability to connect to our growing network or beyond through our hub in Dubai," said Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President, Commercial (GCC, Subcontinent, Africa) at flydubai.
