Flydubai, the Dubai-based airliner, announced its expansion in Romania. Besides its regular flights to Bucharest, Flydubai will operate two more flights a week to Romania, between Dubai International (DXB) and Avram Iancu International Airport Cluj (CLJ) starting from 20 March 2021, as Aviator announced on Thursday, February 25.
Flydubai already operates double daily service between Dubai International (DXB) and Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport (OTP). By expanding its operations to Cluj, Transylvania, Flydubai will service Romanian market with 16 flights in total per week.
We first started operating to Bucharest with four flights a week in 2012. Since then, Flydubai has more than tripled its operations to the market as demand has grown for commercial and cargo traffic between Romania and the UAE. We are excited to offer more options for convenient direct airlinks to the market with the start of our flights to Cluj-Napoca and we look forward to further stimulating travel and trade flows in both directions.Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai
