Posted 29 November 2017 · Add Comment

Flydubai's inaugural flight touched down today at Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO), marking the start of a new daily service from the carrier's second point in Moscow. With operations to Vnukovo International Airport (VKO), Flydubai is now offering 14 weekly flights to the Russian capital.

 

The announcement sees flydubai expand its presence in Russia to 11 points in 10 cities. Earlier this autumn, the carrier launched flights to Makhachkala and Voronezh, resumed services to Ufa and increased capacity on existing routes: Kazan, Krasnodar, Mineralnye Vody, Moscow (Vnukovo), Rostov-on-Don, Samara and Yekaterinburg. Today the carrier operates 47 flights a week to Russia and the figure will grow to 58 flights for the New Year holiday season.        

Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said: “We are excited to see our service to Sheremetyevo take off today as flydubai continues to expand its presence in Russia. The demand for travel to Dubai from Russia has seen extraordinary growth this year. We look forward to supporting this growth by offering more convenient and affordable options between Moscow and Dubai for both business and leisure travellers.”

The inaugural flight arrived early today at Sheremetyevo International Airport Terminal E. The return flight from Sheremetyevo to Dubai International Terminal 2 departed today as well.

Denis Pashkovskiy, Deputy General Director, Commercial Activities of Sheremetyevo International Airport, said: “Sheremetyevo Airport is pleased to welcome flydubai, the new partner from the United Arab Emirates. The company is well known for its high level of service, safety and passenger comfort. Sheremetyevo develops infrastructure, introduces innovative technologies and takes leading positions in international ratings on service quality. Partnering with flydubai will be mutually beneficial and will open new opportunities for passengers and customers.”

Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial (UAE, EU, ME, CIS), said: “partnering with Sheremetyevo was a strategic decision as flydubai will be the first UAE airline to offer direct scheduled services from Dubai to the busiest airport in Russia. Next year passengers from Sheremetyevo will be among the first to enjoy our new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, as we are the first airline in our region to take delivery of this newest aircraft type.”
