Just one week after the double announcement of flights to Assiut (Egypt) and Istanbul (Turkey), flydubai has done it again with another double of new routes for the next month.
Starting on May 17, it will extend its network to Kabul (Afghanistan), and this will be followed two days later with flights to the ancient Egyptian city of Luxor. Flights to the Afghan capital will start from Dh725 and will be five times per week; flights to Luxor will be priced at Dh350 and will be three times weekly.
Ghaith al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said: "It is great to be able to announce another two routes. This brings our network to 17 destinations and continues our commitment to make travel a little less complex, a little less stressful and a little less expensive, and to ensure that more people travel to more destinations more often.
"Again these routes are a combination of the two different types of destinations we were set up to serve – those that have very few direct links to the UAE, and those that are already popular routes but would benefit from having an additional low-cost option.
"Kabul and Luxor are both fascinating places. Luxor boasts some of the most incredible historical sights on the planet, such as the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Karnak. Kabul is going through a turbulent time, but providing air links on a quality airline flying the newest, safest aircraft in the industry will ensure that the people working to secure the country will have a safe and affordable option."
FZ301 will leave Dubai at 0200hrs, reaching Kabul at 0520hrs. FZ302 will depart from Kabul at 0620hrs and arrive in Dubai at 0845hrs.
FZ183 will leave Dubai at 2255hrs and reach Luxor at 0135hrs. FZ184 will depart from Luxor at 0220hrs and arrive in Dubai at 0645hrs.
