recently added a third operational destination to its network -
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
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.
