flydubai Launches | Debut Flights To Slovenian Capital
DUBAI: Dubai-based low-cost airline flydubai has announced the launch of its inaugural flights from the UAE to the Slovenian capital Ljubljana. With this thrice-a-week schedule, the airline has grown its operations in Europe to 20 points in 17 countries.
The inaugural flight FZ 1789 from Dubai International (DXB) to Ljubljana Joze Pucnik Airport (LJU) touched down just after 2 pm to a water cannon salute and a warm welcome from the airport and government officials.
Speaking at the welcome ceremony, flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “We are excited to see our network in Europe grow to 20 points in 17 countries, many of which had very few or no direct links to the UAE. flydubai’s direct flights to Ljubljana will strengthen the ties between our two countries and help stimulate tourism, trade, and investment opportunities in the future.”
“We look forward to welcoming on board our passengers from Slovenia, especially as our city gets ready to welcome the world as Expo 2020 Dubai opens its doors to visitors from the beginning of October,” he noted.
Jeyhun Efendi, Senior VP (Commercial Operations and e-commerce) said: “We are very pleased to see the first flydubai flight land in Ljubljana airport today. We have had excellent feedback from our customers and partners on the launch of our direct flights to the market and we can already see healthy booking numbers.”
“We are confident that passengers will enjoy flydubai’s convenient and reliable service and the comfortable cabin of our Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which offers a flatbed in Business Class, and is scheduled to operate on this route,” he added.
