flydubai has announced its first entry into Bangladesh, with flights to Chittagong, the country’s second largest city, to begin on 17 January.
flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith commented, “Adding a new dimension to the flydubai network, flights to Chittagong will not only cater to the Bangladeshi workforce in the UAE, but also be instrumental in increasing trade and business between our two nations.
“After an eventful year, it is with great pleasure that we wrap up 2010 with the announcement of this new exciting destination. Bangladesh offers a wealth of historical and cultural options for travellers to explore and we are certain this new route will be immensely popular.”
Four times a week flights from Dubai to Chittagong will operate on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, departing at 13:40 and landing in Chittagong at 20:20. The return flight will take off from Chittagong at 21:20 and arrive back in Dubai at 01:25 (all times local). The route will move to a daily operation from 27 March.
