Posted 30 April 2013 · 2 Comments

Dubai-based Flydubai inaugurated flights to Dushanbe today with a ceremony in the Tajikistan capital.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the flight landing, Flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “Today is an exciting day for Flydubai as we start operations to our 33rd country. We are pleased to extend our reach in Central Asia and, as the first UAE airline serving Dushanbe, look forward to encouraging trade and developing further relations between our countries.”

Early tomorrow morning, Al Ghaith will welcome inaugural flight, FZ777, at Dushanbe International Airport before returning to Dubai on board flight FZ778, which departs at 04:50. Operations begin one day after Flydubai took delivery of its latest aircraft from the Boeing factory in Seattle. The 737-800 brings the airline’s total fleet to 29 aircraft.

The start of services to Dushanbe ends a busy month for Flydubai, during which the airline also began flights to Mineralnye Vody, Russia, and the South Sudanese capital, Juba, bringing its operational network to 57 destinations across the Middle East, Southeast Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Central Asia, the subcontinent and North & East Africa.

Flights to Dushanbe operate twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. Flight FZ777 is scheduled to depart Dubai Terminal 2 at 22.05hrs, arriving at Dushanbe International Airport the next day at 02.30hrs local time. The return flight, FZ778, leaves Dushanbe on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 04.50hrs, landing in Dubai at 07.30hrs local time.
