The airline adds sixth Central Asian destination to its network
Dubai-based low cost airline Flydubai has launched flights to Samarkand, expanding its operations in Uzbekistan in addition to services to the capital Tashkent.
The twice-weekly service will operate from 20 September with flights to Samarkand International Airport (SKD) from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB) on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Flydubai operates flights to six destinations in Central Asia, including Almaty and Nur-Sultan in Kazakhstan, Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan, Dushanbe in Tajikistan as well as Samarkand and Tashkent in Uzbekistan. With the launch of the latest route, the airline’s network now comprises 102 destinations served by a fleet of 65 Boeing 737 aircraft.
Flydubai chief commercial officer Hamad Obaidalla said: “We started our operations to Uzbekistan in 2019 and we were pleased to see the market grow as the demand for travel returned.
“With a combined frequency of eight flights a week to Samarkand and Tashkent, we look forward to further supporting the trade and cultural links with the UAE and encouraging more people to visit this beautiful country steeped in history and tradition.”
Emirates will codeshare on the route, offering passengers more options for connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub.
Return Business Class fares from DXB to SKD start from AED8,000 ($2,180) and Economy Class Lite fares start from AED 1,800.
