Flydubai is to start flights to Sochi, Russia. Flights between Dubai and Sochi will operate twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, starting from June 7, 2019. Flydubai will be the first carrier to offer direct flights on this route from the UAE and the GCC.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer of Flydubai, said: “Russia is an important market for flydubai and we are pleased to announce the new direct flights to Sochi which will support the growing flow of travel, trade and tourism between the two countries. We remain committed to opening up previously underserved markets and to providing more travel options to fly to Dubai and beyond through one of the world’s busiest travel hubs.”

Flydubai has been operating to the Russian market since 2010 and offers passengers from the UAE and the combined flydubai and Emirates network, easier access to Moscow and other major Russian cities like Yekaterinburg.

Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president, commercial operations and E-commerce at Flydubai, added: “We are confident that our high quality and reliable service and the convenience of these direct flights, together with the recent changes in visa requirements for Russians and UAE nationals visiting both countries, will make this resort city located on Russia's Black Sea Coast a popular choice for passengers.”
