Dubai-based flydubai has announced the addition of three new routes to its growing network.
Flights to Hargeisa in Somaliland, India’s Chennai, and Nejran in Saudi Arabia will commence in the first quarter of 2015, further expanding the carrier’s footprint to 89 destinations in 46 countries.
From March 5th flydubai will become the first carrier to operate to Hargeisa, Somaliland from Dubai with four weekly flights.
flydubai has expanded its network in Africa in 2014 to 13 points served by 60 weekly flights.
Hamad Obaidalla, chief commercial officer at flydubai, said: “2014 continues to be a very busy year for flydubai.
“We have announced 26 new routes since January and took delivery of eight new aircraft to support the phenomenal growth plans.
“We are very excited about the untapped opportunities in the emerging African markets, the progress the UAE has made on the bilateral front in India and the ongoing strong ties with Saudi.”
The new announced routes underline flydubai’s commitment to connecting the UAE to previously underserved markets.
The carrier has linked Dubai to 56 underserved destinations since it started its operations in 2009.
flydubai has a brand new fleet of 43 new Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft and operates more than 1,200 flights a week across the Middle East, GCC, Africa, Caucasus, Central Asia, Europe and the Indian Subcontinent.
