Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer at flydubai, said: “we are pleased to be the first UAE-based airline to operate direct flights between Dubai and Tirana. We hope these direct airlinks support trade and tourism between the two countries in the future as travel restrictions begin to ease.  We look forward to seeing demand grow on this route and to increasing the frequency of our flights.”
