flydubai has announced it will double its network in Russia to eight points and add additional services in Ukraine.

In Russia, the carrier will launch flights to Mineralnye Vody on 16 April 2013 followed by Rostov-on-Don and Volgograd on 13 September 2013. Operations to Krasnodar, meanwhile, will commence a week later on 20 September 2013. flydubai offers the only year-round direct scheduled services to these cities, which are all located in South West Russia.

The route map in Ukraine will also expand to include the only direct services from Dubai to the Black Sea resort of Odessa as well as Dnepropetrovsk in the east of the country. Flights to Odessa will begin on 15 September 2013, the same day the carrier adds capacity to the capital, Kiev, to which it will fly double daily. Services to Dnepropetrovsk will begin on 18 September 2013.

flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “Russia and Ukraine are two of flydubai’s key markets. We have seen steady passenger growth over the past couple of years in both countries. Not only is Dubai a popular destination, but we are seeing more and more passengers connecting on to flydubai’s services to Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Our strategy of targeting regional airports has been a significant factor in our growth in the region and with the announcements of these six new routes today, a greater number of people will be able to visit the UAE and beyond with our affordable direct flights.”
