Dubai Airport terminal changes set to affect Flydubai passengers
Flights to 22 Flydubai destinations will now depart from Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport
Seven additional Flydubai destinations will soon commence operations from Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport (DXB).
Dubai’s low-cost airline has announced the new destinations set to join the existing 15 locations for which Flydubai flights depart from Terminal 3.
From Sunday, October 27, 2019 passengers flying with Flydubai to Almaty, Basra, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Nur Sultan, Sofia and Zanzibar will depart from Terminal 3 at DXB.
