Sylhet becomes flydubai’s third destination in Bangladesh
Mar 16, 2017: Dubai based flydubai has landed its inaugural flight in Sylhet, Bangladesh and was greeted by a traditional water cannon salute.
The flight marks the start of a four times weekly direct service between Dubai and flydubai’s third destination in Bangladesh, which will increase to six flights a week from May 16, 2017. The operation to Sylhet Osmani International Airport is in partnership with Bangladesh carrier Regent Airways.
Sudhir Sreedharan, senior vice president commercial for GCC, said, “We began operations to Dhaka and Chittagong in 2011 and have seen a strong demand for flights since. We are confident that our passengers from Sylhet will benefit from our direct and convenient flights to Dubai and beyond, via Dubai’s efficient aviation hub connecting over 200 destinations worldwide.”
Since it began flights to Bangladesh, flydubai has carried more than 1.5 million passengers between the two countries. The new service will see flydubai provide up to 27 flights a week to Bangladesh.
