Flydubai said that it would increase flights from Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) from October 25.

It said it would operate flights to Amman, Beirut, Chittagong, Doha, Kathmandu, Kuwait and Muscat from DWC while also continuing to fly to those destinations from Dubai International.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, the chief executive, said the expansion “provides further opportunities for growth as we take delivery of more than 100 new Boeing aircraft by 2023”.

“With the delivery of eight new aircraft each year for the next few years and as we prepare for the first delivery of the new model Boeing 737 MAX we remain focussed on supporting travel, trade and tourism by enhancing connectivity from Dubai’s two airports,” he added.

A statement from flydubai said the airline will operate 70 flights per week during the winter schedule. It has created a network of 94 destinations, with 18 new routes announced since the start of the year.

It said that the addition of flights from DWC will give passengers greater choice and flexibility.
