flydubai to move some flights to Dubai World Central (DWC)

flydubai has confirmed that it will move some flights to key destinations away from its home base of Dubai International DXB to Dubai World Central (DWC). 

The airline will operate flights to select destinations from Dubai World Central (DWC) in order to provide more travel options to passengers during the southern runway refurbishment project previously announced by Dubai Airports. That refurbishment project is scheduled to take place between 16 April 2019 and 30 May 2019 and during that period flights to some 39 destinations will operate to and from DWC.

Commenting on the announcement, flydubai’s Chief Executive Officer, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “As we saw in 2014, runway enhancement programmes continue to support the long-term vision for aviation in the UAE. With flydubai flights operating to select destinations from DWC, we aim to not only support this vision but to provide our passengers with as much choice as possible to travel across our network with minimum disruption.”

At DWC passengers will continue to benefit from all the convenient travel services offered by flydubai at one of the world’s future aviation and logistics hubs, flydubai said.
