flydubai launches Business Class services to Azerbaijan
Take off with flydubai in Business Class
Monday, February 10, 2014 — Dubai-based flydubai will launch Business Class from Baku to Dubai starting 11 February 2014.
This provides passengers from Azerbaijan with a direct, three times weekly Business Class experience on board flydubai’s fleet of 35 new Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
The flydubai Business Class cabin comprises 12 spacious and comfortable reclining seats, made of Italian leather and a seat pitch of 1m. A revolutionary in-flight entertainment system comes with a high-definition touchscreen of 12.1in with a choice of more than 1,000 hours of non-stop entertainment. Business Class passengers can enjoy a more personalised service from flydubai’s highly-trained cabin crew members and an internationally inspired menu on flights.
Business Class passengers are also offered a variety of customised services on the ground, including priority check-in and a fast track through immigration. Business Class passengers have access to Business lounges in Baku and Dubai along with priority baggage collection upon arrival at their destination.
Commenting on the launch, Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations at flydubai stated that, “The introduction of Business Class on our flights from Baku to Dubai is part of our commitment to providing an exceptional product to our customers and catering to a diversified passenger segment. flydubai is evolving as a leading airline in providing a great passenger experience and service as we make flights to Dubai as comfortable as possible.” flydubai’s network covers more than 65 destinations in 35 countries, many of which may have not had the option of Business Class before on any airline, making the service a pioneering feature in these markets.
Besides being a popular leisure and shopping destination, Dubai is also traditionally interesting for the Azerbaijani business community as the business and financial hub of the Middle East, which is accessible with a direct three-hour flight.
Passengers from Baku can also benefit from using Dubai International Airport, an aviation hub with connections to flights to over 200 countries around the world, including popular tourist destinations such as the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
Flights to Baku operate three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
