Flydubai Adds Second Africa Destination

Dubai’s low cost carrier flydubai has expanded its Africa operations, adding a second Africa destination on Tuesday - flight FZ601 touched down at Dijbouti Ambouli International Airport.   CEO of flydubai Ghaith Al Ghaith said second tier cities are underserved by carriers flying out of Dubai.  He said there is not enough traffic for bigger airlines but “there is a significant amount of traffic from these markets and we believe they will be important and profitable routes for flydubai.” 

Ghaith said Dijbouti has long standing commercial links with Dubai including DP World, which operates out of the Port of Dijbouti.   Dijbouti is about half the size of Abu Dhabi with a population of only one half million people.   The 23,000 land mass is comprised of desert, highlands, and plateaus.  The new flydubai service will operate on a Boeing 737-800 aircraft three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
