UAE - Mubasher: Flydubai has expanded its operations in Romania by launching twice-weekly flights between Dubai International (DXB) and Avram Iancu International Airport Cluj (CLJ) in Cluj-Napoca.
The Dubai-based airline will start operating its flights to Cluj-Napoca, the second-largest city in Romania, from 20 March 2021, according to a press release on Thursday.
The airline provides a double daily service between DXB and Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport (OTP); hence, with new flights to Cluj-Napoca, the airline will serve the Romanian market with a total of 16 weekly flights.
The CEO of flydubai, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: "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."
Meanwhile, the Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, and E-commerce at flydubai, Jeyhun Efendi, remarked: "flydubai’s new service will offer more than 3.5 million people, living within few hours drive from the airport, the convenience of direct airlinks to Dubai."
