Dubai: Government-owned budget airline flydubai is all set to double its daily operations to Romania with the addition of new flight schedules to Cluj-Napoca starting from 3rd November, 2021.
With the new flight schedule, the carrier will serve the Romanian market with a total of 16 weekly flights.
Sharing his comments on the new flight chart to Romania, Mr. Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, stated that, “we first started operating to Bucharest with four flights a week in 2012. Since then, flydubai has more than tripled its operations to the market as demand has grown for commercial and cargo traffic between Romania and the UAE. We are excited to offer more options for convenient direct airlinks to the market with the start of our flights to Cluj-Napoca and we look forward to further stimulating travel and trade flows in both directions.”
Second largest Romanian city, Cluj-Napoca is one of the most dynamic economies in the country and is the largest centre for innovation and business opportunities in Transylvania.
Avram Iancu International Airport Cluj (CLJ) is considered an important gateway to the north-western region of Romania.
Located 10 kilometres east from Cluj-Napoca’s city centre, Avram Iancu International Airport Cluj (CLJ) is considered an important gateway to the north-western region of Romania with connections to many regional tourist hotspots.
Mr. Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, remarked that, “flydubai’s new service will offer more than 3.5 million people, living within few hours’ drive from the airport, the convenience of direct airlinks to Dubai. There is also the opportunity for passengers to connect travel beyond on our network to popular destinations like Malé and Zanzibar. The twice-weekly service will also benefit the Romanian expatriate population in the UAE to travel home more easily and offers passengers from the market a more convenient option to visit Dubai during the anticipated Expo 2020 Dubai.”
Cluj-Napoca is strategically located and borders Hungary, Moldov and Ukraine allowing passengers from these markets to take advantage of flydubai’s direct airlinks to Dubai and its aviation hub.
Flydubai will be offering a complimentary 1-Day Ticket to visit Expo 2020 Dubai to passengers who book their tickets to Dubai. Dubai is all set to host one of the largest events around the globe from 1st October 2021 to 31st March 2022.
