Dubai-based flydubai announced the launch of daily flights to Moscow, to start in September 2014, during the Moscow International Travel & Tourism Exhibition (MITT).
Commenting on the launch, flydubai’s Chief Executive Officer, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “We are pleased to announce the launch of direct flights to Russia’s capital marking the airline’s commitment to one of its key markets. This new route will offer both business and leisure travellers greater choice when they travel between Dubai and Moscow.”
flydubai was launched in 2009 and entered the Russian market in its second year of operation. The airline started direct flights to Dubai from Samara and Yekaterinburg in October 2010, followed by Kazan and Ufa in 2011. Last year, the airline doubled its network in the country with four new destinations: Krasnodar, Mineralnye Vody, Rostov-on-Don and Volgograd.
