flydubai marks the first anniversary of its flights from Dubai to Tashkent by participating in Aviation Airports Logistics Forum

Since its inaugural flight the airline has carried more than 70,000 passengers

Dubai-based flydubai is participating in the first edition of the Uzbekistan Aviation Airports Logistics Forum in Tashkent providing the airline with an opportunity to mark its first successful year of operations to the Uzbek market. The airline has carried more than 70,000 passengers between the Uzbek capital and Dubai since it launched flights in March 2019.

flydubai was the first national carrier from the United Arab Emirates to provide direct flights and operates five times a week from Tashkent to Dubai.  

Commenting on flydubai’s participation in the exhibition Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, said: “We are pleased to see growing demand for travel in our first year of operations to Uzbekistan. Our passengers from Tashkent are principally enjoying the benefit of direct flights to Dubai. They can however seamlessly connect onwards to flydubai’s network of 94 destinations and with our codeshare partnership with Emirates there is the opportunity to explore a further 143 destinations. Members of the travel trade industry attending the forum would be welcome to visit our stand and hear more about the opportunities to explore the world as flydubai continues to change the way people travel whether flying in Business or Economy Class.”

Passengers from Tashkent connect on flydubai’s network through Dubai to Madinah and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, and with the codeshare partnership with Emirates flydubai has seen passengers connect onwards to Cairo in Egypt and Dhaka in Bangladesh.

The Uzbekistan Aviation Airports Logistics Forum is a meeting point for transportation authorities, airports, airlines, travel agencies and tour operators from Central Asia, Caucasus, Middle East and Europe. The event is currently being held at the “Uzexpocentre” in Tashkent from 19 to 20 February 2020. flydubai’s stand number is O6, it is located in Pavilion 1 of the exhibition venue.
