Dubai-based flydubai recently launched flights to Bangkok. This is the airline’s first double daily route outside the (Gulf Cooperation Council) GCC and the longest in terms of travel time. A Boeing 737-800 aircraft will be used to operate this flight.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO at flydubai, said: “The inaugural flight to Bangkok is a significant milestone for our airline and represents the increasing maturity of flydubai’s network.”
Flight FZ521 will leave the Dubai International Airport at 16:20 and arrive in Bangkok at 01:25, while FZ522 will leave the Thai capital at 02:35 and arrive back at 06:55.
The second flight FZ525 will depart at 01:40 and arrive at 10:50. FZ524 will take off from the Bangkok airport at 12:10 and arrive back in Dubai at 16:30.
The airline is offering business class experience for the travellers on this new route. Moreover, passengers in the economy class will have access to interactive audio and video seat back entertainment systems and a hot meal.
Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President, Commercial (GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) said: “Bangkok is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, offering a wide range of attractions and activities.
“With the addition of this important city to flydubai’s growing network we will not only offer passengers from Dubai alternative travel options through Thailand, but additionally connect Thailand to Russia and Europe via Dubai, strengthening the UAE’s position as an international travel hub.”
As of now, flydubai flies to more than 90 destinations worldwide. The airline plans to take delivery of more than 100 aircraft by the end of 2023.
