India. The Dubai-based airline had planned to launch flights to
Lucknow, Coimbatore and Chandigarh this month.

cancellations. Flights to Lucknow had been scheduled to
commence today, 13 July, with flights to Coimbatore and Chandigarh
scheduled for 14 July and 23 July launches respectively.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of
flydubai, said, “We understand that this is very inconvenient for
the passengers who have booked flights with us to India and we
apologise for the disruption and disappointment caused.”
Mr Al Ghaith said that all flydubai passengers
who had booked flights to India would be contacted and given a
full refund, plus a voucher for a free return flight to India or
anywhere on the flydubai network, which will be valid for travel
until the end of November 2009.
“India remains an important market for us and we
will make an announcement in the very near future on when our
flights to the region will begin,” he added.
