Flydubai opens low cost route to Southern India
Flydubai, Dubai’s state-owned low cost airline, has announced its second destination in India, Hyderabad.
Flights to Hyderabad will operate three times per week and will start on June 11, opening up a route to Southern India in time for the Summer holiday season.
Flydubai CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “We are delighted to announce Hyderabad as our latest destination. There is a huge Indian community in the UAE and one of the reasons flydubai was established was to provide low cost, quality links to places the expat community in the UAE wish to travel to.
“Hyderabad is an important new route for flydubai and goes a long way in our efforts to fulfil that commitment. While our Lucknow route provides a gateway to North and Central India, our Hyderabad route will be a low-cost connection to South India, benefiting not only the Indian expat population in the UAE but also bringing increased tourism and business opportunities to this historic city.”
A one-way fare to Hyderabad from Dubai starts at AED 585, and includes one piece of hand luggage weighing up to 7kg and one small laptop bag or hand bag.
Fares from Hyderabad to Dubai are priced from AED 760.
Checked baggage starts at AED 50 for 20kg. A seat with extra legroom costs AED100.
