Flydubai to operate double daily flights to Kiev

DUBAI, September 9, 2018

Dubai-based flydubai has announced that it will operate double daily flights to Kiev, Ukraine, from October 2.

It will also move its existing operations to Boryspil International Airport (KBP) in Kiev with effect from October 28.

Flydubai launched its operations to Ukraine in 2013 and offers 17 weekly flights from Kiev and Odessa to Dubai. Ukrainian citizens travelling to Dubai can benefit from a visa-on-arrival. The visit visa is valid for 30-days and is free of charge. Through flydubai’s expanded codeshare partnership with Emirates, Ukrainian passengers also are offered unmatched travel options via Dubai’s aviation hub.

Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president, commercial at flydubai, said: “We welcome the start of our double daily service from Boryspil International Airport, which provides a more convenient travel experience and better connectivity via Dubai’s aviation hub to some of the most popular leisure destinations. Our passengers from Kiev were also one of the first on our network to enjoy our new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft with a flat-bed in Business Class and optimized space and comfort in Economy Class.”

The new Boeing 737 MAX 8 cabin offers a flat-bed in Business Class and in addition to the extra space and privacy, passengers can sleep comfortably during their flight. Economy Class offers new Recaro seats, which are designed to optimise space and comfort so passengers can sit back, relax and enjoy their flight. Flydubai also offers exceptional inflight entertainment with a full HD, 11.6-inch screen, featuring a wide selection of movies, TV shows, music and games in English, Arabic and Russian. In addition, the Boeing Sky interior with its gently-sculpted sidewalls and its smooth-flowing lines provides passengers with a more relaxing travel environment.

Emirates will codeshare on this route as part of the Emirates flydubai partnership announced in July 2017. For bookings under the codeshare, Emirates passengers will receive complimentary meals and the Emirates checked baggage allowance on flights operated by flydubai in Business and Economy classes. With the partnership, passengers from Ukraine will have an opportunity to travel via Dubai to the hundreds of destinations all over the world.

Flydubai operates over 1,700 flights per week to over 90 destinations in 48 countries, including popular routes among Ukrainian travellers, such as Dubai (UAE), Colombo (Sri Lanka), Kathmandu (Nepal) and Zanzibar (Tanzania).

flydubai flights FZ 728/727 and FZ 730/729 operate daily between Boryspil International Airport (KBP) and Dubai International, Terminal 2 (DXB), effective from October 28.

Business Class return fares from Boryspil to Dubai start at $1,853 and are inclusive of all taxes and 40kg checked baggage. Economy Class return fares start at $317 including 7kg hand baggage. - TradeArabia News Service
