Mumbai joins flydubai’s growing network

Carrier announces the launch of five weekly flights to Mumbai and increases frequency to Delhi from October

Dubai-based flydubai today announced the launch of flights to Mumbai, bringing the total number of destinations served by the carrier in India to seven, with 25 flights a week. 

In June, flydubai doubled its network in India with the start of flights to Delhi, Kochi and Trivandrum. The new flights were a result of the expanded bilateral agreements that India has signed with Dubai over the past 12 months. 

Commencing on 28 October 2014, flydubai will operate direct flights five times a week between Dubai International's Terminal 2 and Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, while also increasing the frequency of its flights to Delhi to five weekly. 

Commenting on the announcement, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, said: "India and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have enjoyed close historic relations and have been dynamic trade partners. We are excited to contribute further to additional growth in the travel and trade segments with the launch of our flights to Mumbai. We remain committed to serving the market with affordable and reliable travel options." 

According to reports published by the Consulate General of India, India-UAE trade was valued at USD180 million per annum in the 1970s and today it is valued in excess of USD44 billion, making the UAE one of India's leading trade partners. 

Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President Commercial (GCC, Subcontinent, Africa) for flydubai, said: "We are pleased to see progress being made this year towards strengthening the trade, travel and tourism links between Dubai and India by adding additional seat capacity between these markets. flydubai's flights to Mumbai, Delhi and the five other destinations in the market will give more options to passengers from India to connect through Dubai's efficient aviation hub to other destinations on our network or further afield. Our recently launched Business Class is now available on all our new routes to India: Delhi, Kochi, Mumbai and Trivandrum." 

With the addition of Mumbai, flydubai has built up a network of 76 destinations across 37 countries. The carrier has a fleet of 38 aircraft and operates more than 1,100 flights a week within a five-and-a-half-hour radius of Dubai.
