flydubai, a Dubai-based low cost airline, recently added a third operational destination to its network - Damascus.

Flight FZ 229, which is a daily service, departs Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 2 at 19:10 and lands in Damascus 3 hours and 20 minutes later at 21:30 local time.

The daily 2,000kms Damascus to Dubai flight is timetabled to leave at 22:15 local time for a 02:25 arrival in Dubai.

The latest addition follows the successful launch of flydubai’s first two routes to Beirut and Amman.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said, “flydubai was set up by the government of Dubai to ensure more people would be able to travel to more destinations more often. By adding Damascus to our route network, we are broadening the choice of destinations that people can travel to with our fair fares.”

At the Farnborough Airshow last year, flydubai placed an order for 50 Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, in a deal worth around US$4 billion. Each carries 189 passengers and has a range of over 5,500 kilometres.
