flydubai celebrates ten years of flying to Ukraine

Dubai-based flydubai is celebrating ten years since its first commercial flight to Ukraine in 2011 and it continues to be an important part of the flydubai network. flydubai currently operates daily flights to Kyiv Boryspil International Airport (KBP) and up to three flights a week to Odesa (ODS), its second location in Ukraine where it has been operating since 2013.

Commenting on the occasion, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said: “It’s a wonderful moment when we get to celebrate milestones across our network and it’s a great reflection on how we have grown as an airline. flydubai’s goal has always been to open new markets and make travel more accessible, and I believe that our longevity in the Ukrainian market reflects this achievement. We look forward to welcoming more passengers from Ukraine on our flights as they connect to Dubai and beyond.”

More than 1.5 million passengers have flown between Ukraine and the UAE since 2011. The majority of passengers traveling from Ukraine visit Dubai and other popular destinations for travel include Colombo, Malé and Zanzibar. Ukrainian citizens can benefit from a Visa-on-Arrival when visiting the UAE, which is now home to more than 15,000 Ukrainian residents.

Passengers booking a flydubai flight to Dubai will enjoy a complimentary 1-Day Ticket to visit Expo 2020 Dubai, taking place from 01 October 2021 to 31 March 2022. The initiative is valid for all bookings made from 01 September for travel during the event dates.
