Dubai-based flydubai’s inaugural flight to Moscow landed on Tuesday at Vnukovo International Airport and was welcomed with a traditional water cannon salute. With the launch of direct daily flights to Moscow, flydubai now serves nine destinations in Russia and has one of the most comprehensive networks in the country among UAE-based airlines. In addition the airline offers Business Class and cargo services on each of its Russian routes.
The UAE and Russia enjoy strong economic ties and, according to the UAE Ministry of Economy, trade between the countries grew by 90% in 2013, exceeding USD 3 billion. The UAE also ranks among the top 10 tourist destinations for Russian travellers.
Having built an extensive network in Russia, flydubai is committed to developing travel opportunities between the two countries. The airline launched flights to Samara and Yekaterinburg in 2010, followed by Kazan and Ufa in 2011 and doubled its network last year with four destinations in south-west Russia: Krasnodar, Mineralnye Vody, Rostov-on-Don and Volgograd.
