The move aims to improve connections between Emirates and flydubai…

flydubai has announced that seven of its routes will be shifted from Dubai International Airport (DXB) Terminal 2 to Terminal 3. The transition will take effect from Sunday October 27 for flights to Almaty, Basra, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Nur-Sultan, Sofia, and Zanzibar.

This change will bring the total number of flydubai Terminal 3 routes to 22, while the remaining flights will continue to operate out of Terminal 2 and Dubai World Central (DWC). Passengers booked for these seven flights will receive communications regarding their departure ahead of their travel date.

The decision to shift these flights comes as flydubai and Emirates work closer together to improve connections and make the travelling process smoother and more convenient for passengers.

“As our partnership with Emirates continues to grow, the addition of these seven destinations to Terminal 3 builds on the success of last year’s move and provides more opportunities for us to optimise connectivity for our passengers,” said Alex Mackenzie of flydubai.

From October 27, the full list of flydubai flights from Terminal 3 will include: Almaty, Basra, Belgrade, Bishkek, Bucharest, Catania, Dar es Salaam, Helsinki, Kilimanjaro, Krabi, Krakow, Mineralnye Vody, Naples, Nur-Sultan, Prague, Rostov-on-Don, Salalah, Sofia, Tashkent, Zagreb, Zanzibar and Yangon.

“This move is part of the innovative partnership with Emirates that goes beyond codesharing to several initiatives spanning commercial, network planning, airport operations, the alignment of the frequent flyer programmes and an enhanced customer journey,” the statement said.
