flydubai to operate to Medina

Airline to commence flights to the holy city during Ramadan

flydubai will begin operating flights to Medina  on 25 July 2013, making it the 65th destination for the Dubai-based airline and 15th addition this year.

flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “The holy month of Ramadan is a perfect time to commence flights to the holy city of Medina and we are most grateful to the Saudi authorities for their support and assistance in enabling us to establish a direct air link from Dubai.”

Flights to Medina will operate between Terminal 2 of Dubai International and Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Airport in Medina. The new route will provide GCC residents and pilgrims from the region with fast and convenient access to Islam’s second holiest city after Makkah.

“At the same time, the new route will benefit Medina residents who may wish to visit friends and family during the last two weeks of Ramadan or spend Eid Al-Fitr in the UAE,” Al Ghaith added.

flydubai already operates flights to Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Abha, Qassim, Ha’il, Tabuk, Yanbu and Taif in the Kingdom.
