On 08 July, Flydubai flight FZ 728 from Kiev’s Boryspil International Airport (KBP) arrived at Terminal 2, Dubai International. Onboard the flight were 07 Business Class passengers and 159 Economy Class passengers who were welcomed on arrival from representatives from the airline, Dubai Airports, Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM) and other key stakeholders.  Amongst the passengers were 25 tourists who chose Dubai as their first holiday destination.

Hamad Obaidalla, chief commercial officer of Flydubai, said: “One of my favourite aspects about Flydubai is that we have the opportunity to enable people from around the network to experience our home, and we are delighted to welcome the first tourists to Dubai. As more airports around our network begin to lift flight restrictions, we look forward to seeing our network grow to 66 destinations over the summer period.

"We have been hard at work to redesign our passenger journey in order to minimise the risk of transmission of COVID-19. These efforts are aligned to the stringent public health and safety measures that are in place to ensure that visitors feel safe when they arrive in Dubai.”
