flydubai opens bookings for summer 2014

Scheduled maintenance at Dubai International Airport will see flydubai offer select flights from both Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International

flydubai today announced that it will be offering select flights, over an 80-day period starting in May 2014, from Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) in addition to continuing to operate from its base at Terminal 2 at Dubai International Airport (DXB).

This follows a recent announcement by Dubai Airports relating to an extensive runway enhancement project at DXB from 01 May to 20 July 2014.

flydubai will operate select flights from the newly opened DWC to ensure minimal disruption to its services for passengers. During this short-term period, flydubai passengers will continue to enjoy the convenient, reliable and affordable travel services offered by the airline while accessing the new facilities available at DWC, one of the world’s future aviation and logistics hubs.

flydubai’s Chief Executive Officer, Ghaith Al Ghaith, commented on the announcement: “The forthcoming runway enhancement programme supports the long term vision for aviation in the UAE. We are now opening our bookings for the summer after assessing the best solution to minimise the disruption to our passengers. We believe that by temporarily operating a number of flights from Al Maktoum International will give our passengers as much choice as possible to travel across our network with the minimum disruption.”

This arrangement will cover both the airline’s economy and business class services and passengers can expect to receive the same high quality travel experience they currently enjoy at flydubai’s hub at Terminal 2.

13 destinations from across its network of 66 destinations will be served from DWC during the maintenance period and include Beirut, Chisinau, Kiev (Zhulyany International Airport), Malé, Samara, Yekaterinburg and Ufa among others. flydubai will operate flights to 12 destinations from both DXB and DWC including Amman, Bahrain, Dammam, Doha, Kabul, Kuwait and Istanbul.  All other flights will operate from DXB.

Following the completion of the maintenance project on 20 July 2014, flydubai will resume all flights from Terminal 2, Dubai International Airport.

Further information for passengers will be made available nearer the time.
