Dubai-based low cost carrier Flydubai has announced that flights to seven destinations will move from their current operating base of Terminal 2 and relocate to Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB). Other flydubai services will continue to operate from Terminal 2.
From 27 October 2019, flights to Almaty, Basra, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Nur-Sultan, Sofia, and Zanzibar will operate from Terminal 3. Flights to these destinations before 27 October will continue to operate from Terminal 2. These destinations have been chosen to help improve connections between Emirates and Flydubai with smooth and quick transit times.
The additional seven points will bring the number of destinations operated out of Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB) to 22. This move is part of the partnership with Emirates that goes beyond codesharing to several initiatives spanning commercial, network planning, airport operations, the alignment of the frequent flyer programmes and an enhanced customer journey.
“As our partnership with Emirates continues to grow, the addition of these seven destinations to Terminal 3 builds on the success of last year’s move and provides more opportunities for us to optimise connectivity for our passengers,” said Alex Mackenzie, senior vice president, airport Services at Flydubai. “By working closely together, Emirates and flydubai are able to offer passengers even more options to travel and to connect from the world’s busiest airport,” he added.
Passengers booked to travel to these destinations will be able to check-in for their flight at the Business Class and Economy Class desks in the departures area of Terminal 3. Business Class passengers will be able to enjoy lounge access and fast track services through immigration and security, while transiting passengers benefit from faster connection times.
Passengers who have booked to travel to these destinations from 27 October will receive communications from flydubai in advance of their date of travel, informing them of the update to their travel itinerary.
