Flydubai adds new route to Saudi Arabia
- Saudi Arabia: Thursday, January 05 - 2012 at 08:51
Low-cost carrier Flydubai has announced that it is launching a new service to the city of Taif in Saudi Arabia and increasing the frequency of flights to other localities in the kingdom.
"Our daily flights to Riyadh and Dammam have seen overwhelming success with business and commercial travellers alike and these extra flights are a direct result of increasing consumer demand for direct, convenient, low-cost links to the Saudi capital and Eastern Province," said Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith.
The airline said Taif marks its seventh destination in Saudi Arabia and furthers its strategy of connecting the UAE to destinations previously under-served by direct air links.
Situated 1,700m above sea level in the Hejaz province, Taif is gaining prominence around the region as an alternative short-holiday destination. It is also an alternative gateway for travellers to the holy city.
With the launch of operations to Taif, Flydubai will operate a total of 55 weekly flights to destinations across the kingdom.
Flights to Taif will operate three times a week and one way fares from Dubai to Taif start at Dhs570.
