The return flight to Dubai will depart from Djibouti at 11:00 am local time and arrive in Dubai at 3:15 local time.

Flydubai CEO Gaith Al Gaith said Djibouti is an important trading destination and has established commercial links with Dubai noting that DP World operates to Port of Djibouti.   He said “There are very few direct flights from Djibouti to Dubai, so we anticipate strong demand”.
