flydubai launches flights to Grozny

flydubai becomes the first UAE-based airline to offer direct flights to Grozny

flydubai, the Dubai-based airline, today announced the start of flights to Grozny, the capital of the Chechen Republic in the Russian Federation. Flights between Dubai International (DXB) and Grozny Airport (GRV) will operate twice weekly starting from 17 December 2020. flydubai will be the first carrier to offer direct flights on this route from the UAE.

flydubai has been operating flights to Russia since 2010 and offers passengers from the UAE through the combined flydubai and Emirates network easier access to Moscow and other major Russian cities. The airline has been steadily increasing its operations since July and continues to operate all-cargo flights and repatriation flights in addition to scheduled services. The new service to Grozny will give passengers access to Dubai and other holiday destinations across the carrier’s network.

Commenting on the announcement, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at flydubai, said: “since commencing operations in 2009, we have been committed to opening up new routes to previously underserved markets to offer more people the opportunity to travel more often. As we continue to see more countries lifting restrictions on international travel and expect the demand for travel to increase during the winter holiday season, we are pleased to announce the start of flights to Grozny.”

Located on the Sunzha River, Grozny is the capital city of the Chechen Republic. The city has a lot to offer including modern architecture, shopping malls and attractions such as the Grozny Central Dome Mosque.

Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, added: “Russia has always been an important market for flydubai. With the new direct route between Dubai and Grozny we continue to support the flow of travel, trade and tourism from previously underserved markets.”

Passengers travelling in Business Class will enjoy space and privacy in the cabin, a comfortable spacious seat, inflight entertainment including more than 120 films and a range of dining options. Passengers will also benefit from a generous checked baggage allowance and fast track through immigration and security at Terminal 2 at Dubai International.

Passengers travelling in Economy Class are offered comfortable RECARO seats and can purchase an extra-legroom seat as well as light snacks and refreshments. flydubai continues to roll-out WiFi across its fleet enabling passengers to stay connected during their flight and can browse the web, send emails, use social networks and get the latest news. Passengers are able to choose between bundled (Flex/Value) or unbundled (Lite) fares depending on their travel needs.

Emirates will codeshare on this route offering travellers more seamless connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub to 155 destinations between both the Emirates and flydubai networks including Australia, China, Indian Ocean, Japan, South Asia and the United States.
