Flydubai to add three new destinations this summer

Posted 15 February 2017 · Add Comment

Flydubai will add three new destinations for the upcoming summer season. Batumi in Georgia, Qabala in Azerbaijan and Tivat in Montenegro are the latest destinations to join its fleet.

Flydubai will be the first carrier to offer direct flights from the UAE to Qabala and Tivat, and the first from Dubai to Batumi. GCC nationals will not need a visa to any of these three new destinations, while UAE residence will receive visa on arrival.

“We would like to thank the authorities in Azerbaijan, Georgia and Montenegro for making it easier for the residents of the UAE and GCC to visit these countries by facilitating their visa requirements,” said Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer at Flydubai, commenting on the announcement.

“We continue to look for opportunities to further expand our network and offer our passengers more options to travel especially for the summer holiday season. These popular new routes in will complement our existing comprehensive network and will be a gateway to explore this part of the region,” added Al Ghaith.

Batumi, which will be served by three flights a week, will be Flydubai’s second destination in Georgia following Tbilisi. Qabala, which will be served by two fights a week, is Flydubai’s second point in Azerbaijan after Baku. While the start of two weekly flights to Tivat will mark Flydubai’s first entry to Montenegro following the successful promotional trip that was held in October 2016 in partnership with Porto Montenegro.

“We are confident that the demand for these new summer flights will be strong in both Business and Economy Class. The interest in affordable, popular and off-the-beaten-track holiday destinations continues to grow especially from the GCC markets and these routes offer alternative options for those seeking a beach holiday or city breaks,” said Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president commercial (UAE, EU, ME, CIS) at Fydubai.
