Dubai-based flydubai on Thursday announced the addition of three new East African routes, bringing the total number of destinations in the carrier's network to 80. With the launch of flights in September 2014 to Bujumbura in Burundi, Entebbe in Uganda and Kigali in Rwanda, flydubai will fly to nine destinations in Africa.
"The launch of three new East African destinations also sees flydubai become the first national carrier from the U.A.E. to fly to Rwanda and Burundi, underlining our commitment to opening up underserved markets," said Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai.
flydubai's operation to these emerging markets will provide passengers with a reliable, direct and high-quality service. Business Class, which is made available for the first time between Dubai and Burundi, will give passengers travelling to these new destinations a more comfortable and personalised travel experience.
"We have announced 17 new destinations since the start of 2014, matching the total number of destinations flydubai launched last year. We look forward to continuing to expand our network as we remain committed to supporting Dubai's trade and tourism sectors," continued Al Ghaith.
In addition to operating between Dubai and these three new cities, flydubai has obtained the rights to carry passengers between Uganda and Burundi.
Rwanda and Burundi are home to some of the most biodiverse places. Filled with numerous volcanoes, nature reserves and the second deepest lake in the world, the two countries also have one third of the world's remaining Mountain Gorillas and one third of Africa's bird species. While tourism is the largest contributor to Rwanda and Burundi's economies, Uganda is considered one of Africa's most progressive economies and is emerging as one of the leading commercial centres within Africa.
Within Africa, flydubai currently operates flights to Alexandria in Egypt, Khartoum and Port Sudan in Sudan, Juba in South Sudan, Ethiopia's Addis Ababa as well as Djibouti's capital Djibouti.
