Flydubai Introduces 21st Destination

June 30, 2010 | By More

Dubai’s first low cost airline, Flydubai, has notched up its 4th new destination in a week when their inaugural flight to Sri Lanka touched down in Colombo.

Flydubai’s CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith, who travelled on the inaugural flight, said,

“We’re delighted to be able to expand our range of destinations in the South Asian sub-continent with the start of our flights to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is a popular tourist destination and by making travel to the capital a little less complex, a little less stressful and a little less expensive, I am confident this new route will be a popular one.”

“With wonderful beaches and fabulous historical and cultural sites to attract visitors, Sri Lanka is always a popular destination for tourists. I am confident the advent of Flydubai’s simple, uncomplicated, quality, low fare service to Colombo will be popular with travellers in both directions and will help to stimulate this growing market.”

Travel to Sri Lanka has shown a significant increase so far this year, with a 106% growth in the first quarter of 2010, according to the Sri Lankan tourism board.

Flydubai will operate 4 flights per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Flight FZ555 leaves Dubai International Airport Terminal 2 at 18:55hrs and arrives in Colombo at 01:10hrs local time the following day. The return flight FZ556 leaves Colombo at 02:10hrs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, arriving at Dubai Airport at 05:10hrs local time.

Using Flydubai’s simple model, customers only pay only for the services they want to receive. The price includes all taxes and one piece of hand baggage, weighing up to 10kg, per passenger.

Flydubai operates from a modernised and enhanced Terminal 2 at Dubai Airport.
