Flydubai will move all its operations back to Dubai International Airport (DXB) from Al Maktoum International Airport following the end of the runway closure at DXB on May 30, according to Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith.
Earlier in April, Flydubai confirmed that flights to 42 destinations were being transferred to Al Maktoum between April 16 and May 30. Out of the 42 routes, flights to Alexandria, Bahrain, Dammam, Jeddah, Kabul, Kathmandu, Kuwait and Muscat continue to operate from both airports.
Speaking to Arabian Business on the sidelines of the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, Ghaith said that, following the re-opening of the DXB runway, the airline’s operations will return to what they were before April 16.
“What that is over, all of our flights will come back. Our operations in Jebel Ali [Al Maktoum] will consist of whatever it was before the closure,” he said. “Jebel Ali continues to be an important part of our future and we will grow there as much as we can as we move on.”For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
