Flydubai marks the start of the winter travel season in Russia with four new destinations and increased frequencies on existing routes.

The airline’s first flight to Makhachkala landed on 31 October and was greeted by a traditional water cannon salute. The carrier also inaugurated flights to Voronezh, resumed services to Ufa and announced the launch of flights to Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow from 29 November.

These new routes, together with the increased frequencies from mid-December, will expand flydubai’s footprint in Russia to 11 points and 52 weekly flights. The carrier continues to explore new opportunities to service the market while continuing to operate direct airlinks to the remaining points in Russia including Kazan, Krasnodar, Mineralnye Vody, Moscow (Vnukovo), Rostov-on-Don, Samara and Yekaterinburg.

Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president commercial (UAE, EU, ME, CIS) at Flydubai, said: “It has been seven years since flydubai entered the Russian market and we continue to   expand our footprint in the country. With four additional routes and increased frequencies, we’re offering more options to explore Russia for travellers from Dubai and across our network.”
