Select Flydubai flights to operate from Terminal 3, Dubai International

Posted 11 July 2018 · Add Comment

Flydubai has announced that flights to 10 of its destinations will move from its current operating base of Terminal 2 and relocate to Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB).

 

Other services will continue to operate from Terminal 2, Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC).

This next step follows earlier announcements regarding the innovative partnership with Emirates, which goes beyond codesharing to a number of initiatives spanning commercial, network planning, airport operations, the alignment of the frequent flyer programmes and an enhanced customer journey.

Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Flydubai, said: “last July, we announced the extensive codeshare partnership which has seen Emirates and Flydubai work closely together to offer customers unmatched opportunities to travel.  As part of this next phase flights to 10 Flydubai destinations will operate from Terminal 3 optimising connectivity for their passengers from the world’s busiest airport.”

From 02 December 2018, flights to Belgrade, Bishkek, Bucharest, Catania, Dushanbe, Helsinki, Krakow, Prague, Rostov-on-Don and Salalah will operate from Terminal 3, Dubai International.  Flights to these destinations before 02 December will continue to operate from Terminal 2. 

Passengers booked to travel to these destinations will be able to check-in for their flight at the Business Class and Economy Class desks in the departures area of Terminal 3.  Business Class passengers will be able to use fast track on the ground and enjoy other Business Class services, whilst transiting passengers will have a smooth and quick transit time.

Analyst Saj Ahmad commented: “It's been a long time coming but Flydubai's initial flights out of Terminal Three was always going to be a smart move.

“Notwithstanding it's ever-expanding relationship with Emirates, Flydubai customers flying into multiple European and Russia routes will enjoy seamless connections from T3 while benefitting from reduced minimum connection times.

“Alongside the recent news of Skywards becoming the single reward scheme for both airlines, Flydubai is flexing it's muscular efficiency to make the most of capturing transit passengers as well as being able to carry passengers from Emirates-originating flights from across the globe.”

Ahmad added: “This is a great move and its inevitable that Flydubai's connections with Emirates will become ever more integrated as more flights are moved into Terminal Three.”
