Azerbaijan, Baku, May 17 / Trend /
Flydubai, Dubai's first low cost airline, today announced its much anticipated second destination in India, the City of Pearls, Hyderabad, the company reported.
The airline's 37th destination will provide a low cost option from Dubai to one of the fastest-growing cities in the world and will open up Southern India to travellers on flydubai's rapidly expanding network.
Flights to Hyderabad will operate three times per week and will start on June 11th, giving the 1.4 million-strong Indian expat community in the UAE a timely yet low-cost connection to their home country during the peak summer holiday season.
"We are delighted to announce Hyderabad as our latest destination. There is a huge Indian community in the UAE and one of the reasons flydubai was established was to provide low cost, quality links to places the expat community in the UAE wish to travel to. Hyderabad is an important new route for flydubai and goes a long way in our efforts to fulfil that commitment. While our Lucknow route provides a gateway to North and Central lndia; our Hyderabad route will be a low-cost connection to South India, benefiting not only the Indian expat population in the UAE but also bringing increased tourism and business opportunities to this historic city," flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said.
Flight FZ435 to Hyderabad will depart Dubai Terminal 2 at 2030hrs, arriving in Hyderabad at 0145hrs local time. The return flight FZ436 will depart Hyderabad at 0230hrs, landing back in Dubai at 0440hrs.
A one-way fare to Hyderabad from Dubai starts at AED585, and includes one piece of hand luggage weighing up to 7kg and one small laptop bag or hand bag. Fares from Hyderabad to Dubai are priced from AED760. Checked baggage starts at AED50 for 20kgs. A seat with extra legroom costs AED100.
Established in March 2008, flydubai, Dubai's first low cost airline, started operations on June 1st, 2009. Set up by the government of Dubai, flydubai is aimed at making travel a little less complex, a little less stressful and a little less expensive.
