flydubai’s cargo division was also recognised for its work, receiving the “Air Cargo Operator of the Year” award at the Logistics Middle East Awards 2019 which was held earlier this month. The award highlights flydubai Cargo’s capabilities to transport live animals along with additional features for customers such as door to door or airport to airport transportation and the option to book return flights for pets and other live animals.
“We are always pleased to be recognised across the industry,” said Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai. “It demonstrates the hard work of the flydubai team and the recognition by our passengers of the unique experience we provide across our network. In the last year, we have continued to focus on opening up underserved markets, enhancing our product offering and providing passengers with more choice for travel.”
In the last year, flydubai has launched flights to Dubrovnik, Helsinki, Kozhikode and Tashkent and recently announced the launch of flights to Naples and Sochi starting this summer. Its codeshare partnership with Emirates has seen the two airlines jointly carry more than 3.29 million customers on codeshare flights across 84 destinations, with flydubai operating select flights from Terminal 3 to optimise connectivity. Emirates Skywards became the Dubai-based airline’s loyalty programme in August 2018.
