Flydubai schedules Dubrovnik service

NEWS FLASH


Flydubai has scheduled new seasonal summer flights between Dubai and Dubrovnik, making it its fifth destination in the former Yugoslavia. As previously reported, the airline will maintain four weekly flights between the two, from April 10 until October 25, 2018. All services will be operated with the airline's 174-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft, featuring twelve seats in business class and the remaining 162 in economy. “For the first time this year, we offered our passengers direct flights to popular summer destinations and based on the success of these routes we decided to increase the options for next year and we are looking forward to the start of flights to Dubrovnik and Kutaisi”, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Flydubai's CEO, said commenting on the announcement. He added, "These popular new routes, along with the relaunch of flights to Batumi, Tivat and Qabala, will complement our existing comprehensive network and will offer our passengers more options to explore this summer, especially as we see more connecting traffic onto our network as a result of our interline and codeshare agreements”.

  1. WOW! I am so happy that they are launching flights but I am also a bit afraid since they are starting with four flights when they had problems with three flights to ZAG.

    But then again they seem to be doing well in TIV

    1. Three per week sounds more reasonable.

    2. Who told you they had problems in ZAG? This saga is so funny.

    3. They did. They suspended the route and said 2 weeks ago they did not suspend it because of Emirates.

    4. And Emirates said they have no interest in exYu just 2 months prior opening Zagreb route. For sure they will tell the truth "yes we have to move to make place for big brother". Come on...

    5. Why wouldn't they tell the truth when they have signed a deal to do just that. Had you ever flown on these flights, you would have seen that the loads were not great.

      "In Zagreb we did not coordinate our suspension with Emirates. This was a coincidence. However, as part of our cooperation with Emirates, besides having codeshare flights, we are going to have more network coordination", Flydubai’s Senior Vice President for Commercial Operations, Jeyhun Efendi, said

  2. Kolika je vjerojatnost da bi ova linija mogla ostati cjelogodišnja? Kakva je praksa Flydubaija?

    1. Mislim da nema potrebe da bude cjelogodišnja. Turkish pokriva istok tijekom zime, i unatoč tomu što nema konkurencije nekad otkazuje letove. Flydubai će se bez sumnje puniti tijekom leta, mislim da će godinu iza komotno moći ići na 7/7, al mislim da nema šanse da će forsirat cjelogodišnju liniju.

    2. Možda ako razdvoje SJJ-TGD pa preko zime da ide preko jednog od ta dva grada?

    3. Teško. Da nema Mostara između Dubrovnika i Sarajeva, zimi bi putnike između Du i Sa mogao potrpati u kombi. Nema tu kruha.

    4. Tesko da ce ikad ici 7/7.

    5. Jedino ako EK otkaze Zagreb.

    6. Evo samo sto nije. Ako malo jace zazelis, desit ce se do kraja godine.

      Delete
    7. Mislim da će vrlo brzo doći na 7/7. Vidiš da je Turkish, ako se ne varam, tijekom ljeta na 9/7, čak su usred prve sezone letenja povećavali broj rotacija... tijekom ljeta ima putnika, a bit će ih sve više.

    1. That was already published some weeks ago in the article that's linked above

      "Sarajevo is one of our more popular routes but it is quite seasonal. Presently, we have four weekly flights and then, during the summer, operations will reach three daily services", Flydubai’s Senior Vice President for Commercial Operations, Jeyhun Efendi, told EX-YU Aviation News"

  5. This means that DBV will surpass ZAG next year. There is no more doubt about it.

    1. Of course not ... but even if it does, so what?

    2. Well it will be a historic day for Croatia.

    3. How can it surpass ZAG over one seasonal service? Just count the seats...even if FZ flies 100% full all the time and doesn't steal a single passenger from other carriers, it is still not that big of a number.
      And you do realize that DBV (much like anything expect ZAG) is totally dead apart from summer? Year lasts 12 months....

    4. Difference between Dubrovnik and Zagreb is 600.000 passengers. Now, you really think Dubrovnik will have 600.000 more passengers next year and Zagreb will decrease in number of passengers?
