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.
