flydubai has announced its 44th destination, Ahmedabad in India, which it describes as the world’s third fastest growing city, with flights operating weekly on Saturdays from 27 August.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, commented, “Ahmedabad is the former capital and largest city in Gujarat and I am delighted to be able to announce that it will become the third Indian city on flydubai’s rapidly expanding network.
“The growing Indian expatriate population in the UAE and the increasing reliance our two nations have on each other for our economic growth and development, makes the introduction of quality, affordable direct flights between the UAE and India’s numerous secondary airports very important.
“I would like to thank the Indian authorities for granting us the permission to fly to this exciting destination. flydubai looks forward to extending a very warm welcome to the passengers travelling between Ahmedabad and Dubai and we look forward to being able to extend our service to other Indian cities in the future.”
The outbound flight, FZ437, will depart Dubai Terminal 2 at 22:10, landing in Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport at 02:50. The return flight, FZ438, will take off at 03:35 and land back in Dubai at 05:05.
