flydubai Arrives in Armenia

Dubai, U.A.E.  - flydubai's inaugural flight to the Armenian capital, Yerevan, touched down yesterday afternoon, making it the 25th operational route for Dubai's first low cost airline.

flydubai CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith said: "Yerevan is another fascinating destination that has been added to the flydubai route network; it's a route that once again underlines flydubai's expansion, offering passengers somewhere new to visit and to explore.

"This is what flydubai is about. By offering a diverse choice of destinations, we encourage people to travel more often, to a wider range of places.

"Destinations like Yerevan offer both leisure and business opportunities that don't always immediately spring to mind, but with flydubai services we aim to help people discover these," he said.

The picturesque city is set to the spectacular backdrop of Mount Ararat, and is full of history and culture as well as a modern streak that is flourishing with the influx of international and major Armenian business.

As flydubai's 25th operational route, Yerevan marks another milestone in the growth of the airline, and a thriving and intriguing city such as Armenia's capital is a fitting destination for this, reinforcing the values and aims of flydubai.

Flight FZ715 departs Dubai at 1010hrs, arriving in the Armenian capital at 1335hrs local time. The return service FZ716 leaves Yerevan at 1420hrs and touches down in Dubai at 1725hrs local time.
