Dubai-based carrier flydubai has said that it expects three million passengers to travel across its network this summer.

From June 23 onwards, the airline will begin flights to 11 destinations, including Abha in Saudi Arabia, Batumi in Georgia, Bodrum, Izmir and Trabzon in Turkey, Catania and Pisa in Italy, Dubrovnik in Croatia, Mykonos and Santorini in Greece and Tivat in Montenegro.

An average of 8,500 monthly departures are scheduled across the carrier’s network from July to September this year, posting an anticipated 43 per cent growth in available seat kilometre compared to the same period in 2019.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer at flydubai, said: “While the global aviation sector has been slowly recovering from the repercussions of the pandemic, we have seen Dubai steadfast in its approach to enable the return to free flows of trade and tourism. The decisions made early on in the pandemic have enabled us to ramp up our operations to cater to the pent-up demand in record time. This would not have been possible without the hard work of our people, the collaborative approach taken by the key stakeholders in the UAE and the confidence our passengers have in our operations.”

flydubai’s flights to more than 30 destinations, which were temporarily operating out of Dubai World Central, will return to operate from Dubai International (DXB) from tomorrow, June 23, following the completion of the 45-day Northern runway rehabilitation programme at DXB.

Meanwhile, flydubai will also add frequency on some of its popular routes including Baku, Belgrade, Budapest, Ljubljana, Maldives, Prague, Salzburg, Sarajevo, Tbilisi and Zanzibar, to cater to increasing demand, a statement said.

The airline will take delivery of four new aircraft by August 2022, growing its fleet of Boeing 737s to 68 aircraft. It has also grown its workforce over the past 12 months by 20 per cent which includes pilots, cabin crew and professionals from across 135 different nationalities.

The carrier has advised passengers to book early and online, arrive at the airport at least four hours before the flight departure time and check their baggage allowance before travel. Boarding gates close 20 minutes before the flight departure time, while online check-in is available from 48 hours up to 90 minutes before the flight departure time.
