Flydubai lands in Eritrea


According to Breaking Travel News, flydubai’s inaugural flight has arrived in Eritrea’s capital city of Asmara, the airline’s 13th destination in East Africa.

“The addition of Asmara to our network reflects our commitment to enhancing air connectivity to Dubai which includes 67 points that did not previously have direct air links to Dubai or were underserved,” said Ghaith Al Ghaith, flydubai CEO.

Asmara is the 18th destination flydubai has launched this year, with the airline recently launching operations to Burundi, Rwanda, Somaliland, Tanzania and Uganda.

Business class passengers have access to business lounges across the network and a dedicated 24-hour business team to assist with bookings and attend to enquires throughout their journey. On board, they have a choice of meals from an internationally-inspired menu and an in-flight entertainment system equipped with more than 1,300 hours of content, including movies, games and newspapers.
