The airline will operate four flights a week to the new destination, offering passengers a convenient and affordable option for travel to Africa. Flydubai has not yet revealed the name of the African city that it will be flying to, but has stated that it is a major destination in the region.

Our new route will connect Dubai to a major African city, offering passengers a convenient and affordable option for travel to the continent. We are committed to expanding our network and providing our passengers with new and exciting destinations to explore.”
Hamad Obaidalla further added, “We continue to look for opportunities to grow our network in East Africa and open up underserved markets. This region has seen significant economic growth and development in recent years, our direct flights will further stimulate the economy and help create free flows of travel and trade.”
The launch of the new route is part of Flydubai’s ongoing expansion plans, as the airline seeks to increase its footprint in key markets around the world.
