“We increase the number of underserved markets served by flydubai with direct flights from the UAE to 71 destinations,” said flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith. “The fact that around 70% of our network was previously underserved means that we remained committed to the vision set for us to create free flows of trade and tourism and strengthen direct air links with the UAE.”

With the new additions to flydubai’s network, the Dubai-based carrier now operates flights to 102 destinations in 46 countries, becoming one of the strongest and most diverse international low-cost carriers in the globe.
