It plans to continue adding more Business Class routes across its network in the months to come.
Commenting on the announcement, flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “As the evolution of our passenger offering continues, we are delighted to announce that our Business Class routes are now on sale. We are also tremendously excited to be offering the Business Class experience on routes that have not had this option before with any airline, such as Bishkek, Donetsk and Juba.
flydubai received its first aircraft with Business Class seats at the start of August, and since then they have been used for testing and training. All new aircraft subsequently delivered will include business and economy classes, while existing aircraft will be retrofitted to include the premium option.
flydubai’s first flight offering Business Class will be flight FZ729 from Dubai to Kiev, departing at 0:05hrs on 8 October 2013. Other business class routes starting in October include Malé, Istanbul, Mineralnye Vody and Bucharest.
“Our Business Class option, along with the variety of destinations we now fly to, gives our customers yet another reason to choose flydubai. This moment also signifies the growth of our fleet and with the arrival of our new Business Class aircraft, we plan to add more Business Class destinations to our network by the end of the year. As tickets go on sale today we look forward to welcoming our Business Class customers in this new chapter in flydubai’s history.”
