flydubai launches EU flights with new Bucharest route

  • flydubai continued expanding its network to Eastern Europe on 1 October when the Emirati low-cost airline began operating three weekly flights from its Dubai (DXB) base to Romania’s capital Bucharest (OTP). Notably, this is flydubai’s first route to a destination in the European Union. The operator of 189-seat 737-800s competes with Tarom’s also thrice-weekly operations. flydubai’s CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “Since the launch of our first flight to Central & Eastern Europe with our service to Baku in Azerbaijan, in November 2009, flydubai has expanded rapidly to become the leading airline servicing the region. With the addition of Bucharest, we now fly to 13 destinations across eight countries in the region.”
