Since the launch of its operations flydubai recognised the opportunity presented by the lack of direct flights to Dubai and over the last six years of operations has launched 17 destinations in 8 CIS countries. flydubai’s passenger surveys show a key factor for choosing the airline is connectivity.
All flydubai CIS routes offer Business Class and cargo services, with strong demand for Business Class in markets where this service was not previously available. Passenger numbers from the Caucasus increased by 21% and from Central Asia by 15% in 2015 compared to 2014.
flydubai’s network in the CIS includes: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan (2 destinations), Kyrgystan, Russia (8 destinations), Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Ukraine (2 destinations).
