Dubai’s low-cost carrier Flydubai has put all the speculations to rest by announcing its flights to India, with the Lucknow route launching from June 2nd. By adding Lucknow to its network, Flydubai has gained a stronger foothold in the Indian Subcontinent.
"Lucknow is the second largest city in one of the most heavily populated areas of India and we anticipate that this will be a very successful route for us. The city, which has a population of around five million people, is underserved by direct air links to the UAE and one of our key commitments is to start flights to this type of destination” said CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith.
The thrice- weekly flights to the state capital of Uttar Pradesh will be Flydubai’s 20th destination and will be use Boeing 737-800NG aircraft to operate. A one-way fare including all taxes and one piece of hand luggage is priced at Dh500. The service aims to tap a healthy mix of business and leisure travellers on the route.
