flydubai operates 24 additional flights between Kuwait and Dubai for the 56th National and Liberation Day Holiday

flydubai will operate up to 14 flights a day between Kuwait and Dubai from 22 February to 27 February 2017

Dubai-based flydubai will operate up to 14 flights a day between Kuwait and Dubai from 22 February to 27 February 2017. The additional 24 flights which will operate during this period will accommodate the increase in passengers travelling between the two cities during Kuwait’s 56th National and Liberation Day Holiday.

The carrier, which has been operating from the convenient Sheikh Saad Al Abdullah Terminal in Kuwait since 2013, offers Kuwaiti citizens and well-wishers from the UAE a flexible flight schedule to join the country’s celebrations.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, said: “We congratulate our brothers in Kuwait on the occasion of the country's National and Liberation Day, a very dear occasion to our hearts and celebrated by everyone in the GCC and the region and not only in Kuwait. Our heart felt wishes to the leadership and the people of the country for more progress, peace and prosperity."

flydubai’s operations from Sheikh Saad Al Abdullah Terminal offer passengers a convenient check-in area, reduced queueing time at immigration and a more personalised flying experience. During the holiday period, passengers are advised to arrive at the airport at least three hours before the departure time of their flight and to check in online, where possible, to avoid the last-minute rush as thousands of people gear up to travel ahead of one of the busiest weekends for travel. Passengers are also reminded to check their baggage.

Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President, Commercial (GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) for flydubai, said: “Kuwait is an important market for flydubai and we remain dedicated to offering passengers from Kuwait more options to travel between the two countries whether in Business or Economy Class.  Our high-quality service, convenient travel schedule and great value for money continues to be popular with our passengers.”

With over 1,000 hours of entertainment, the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system (IFE) has something for everyone with a selection of Hollywood, Bollywood, Russian and Arabic films in addition to a range of TV programmes, audio albums and games. This service is offered free of charge in Business Class and if travelling in Economy Class it can be pre-purchased online in addition to extra legroom.
