flydubai set to launch second Indian route in June

Dubai's low cost carrier says it will start flights to Hyderabad in south India on June 11

flydubai set to launch second Indian route in June

flydubai, Dubai's low cost airline, said on Monday it was poised to launch its second route to India.

The carrier said it would start flights to Hyderabad, known as the city of pearls, from June 11.

The airline's 37th destination will provide a low cost option from Dubai to one of the fastest-growing cities in the world, flydubai said in a statement.

Flights to Hyderabad will operate three times per week, and aims to serve the 1.4 million-strong Indian expat community living in the UAE.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, flydubai CEO, said: "We are delighted to announce Hyderabad as our latest destination. There is a huge Indian community in the UAE and one of the reasons Flydubai was established was to provide low cost, quality links to places the expat community in the UAE wish to travel to."

He added: "While our Lucknow route provides a gateway to North and Central lndia; our Hyderabad route will be a low-cost connection to South India."

flydubai launched its Lucknow service, its first in India, last year, 10 months after having to delay its initial plans.

Flights to Lucknow finally began last June after the carrier was forced to postpone all three of its routes to Lucknow, Coimbatore and Chandigarh due to operational issues in 2009.
