flydubai is continuing its rapid network expansion with plans to fly to Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city and financial capital, from 21 June.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said Karachi would play an important role in expanding flydubai’s reach and will make a significant difference to the Pakistani expatriates working in the UAE. “There are currently more than 700,000 expatriates from Pakistan working in the UAE and an extra opportunity for them to travel back home has to be good news,” he declared. “We are in the business of bringing more people together more often and we can see the Karachi route being a very busy one indeed.
“Pakistan is already a very close trading partner with the UAE and there is always the potential for even more commercial ties. One of our goals is to use the flydubai routes as a means for people to forge new friendships, visit new places and new cultures, to experience new destinations and to enjoy new relationships, whether for business or pleasure,” Al Ghaith added.
On the outbound sector from Dubai, FZ333 will depart Dubai from Sunday to Thursday at 08:15 and arrive in Karachi at 11:25. The return flight, FZ334, will leave at 12:10 arriving in Dubai at 13:20hrs, all times local.
On Fridays and Saturdays FZ333 will depart Dubai at 11:35hrs and arrive in Karachi at 14:45 before FZ334 makes the return journey at 15:30, arriving in Dubai at 16:40.
