Flydubai’s inaugural flight has touched down in Krabi in Thailand, becoming the first UAE-based airline to offer flights to the popular holiday destination.

 

The daily flights are operated via a short stop in Yangon, Myanmar and are codeshared with Emirates.

“We are delighted to mark the inaugural of our new route to Krabi and to see our network grow further East,” said Sudhir Sreedharan, senior vice president, commercial operations (UAE, GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) at Flydubai.

“Over the past ten years we have shown our commitment to opening up underserved markets and enabling millions of passengers to travel to more places more often.  This new route will present more travel options for passengers from the UAE and beyond, while giving people from Thailand direct access to Dubai’s travel hub.”

Attaporn Nuang-udom, the Director of Krabi Airport said: "the opening of the new route (Krabi) is a great opportunity to promote and facilitate the connection between Thailand and the Middle East. Also, it is a good chance for enhancing tourism in Southern Thailand. Your dedication and support for the Thai travel market means a great deal to all of us. Thank you very much.”
