Flydubai has revealed the introduction of direct flights to two fresh destinations in Iran. Starting from September 7, the airline will offer a four-times weekly service to Kish Island, and a twice-weekly service to Kerman beginning September 9. These flights will depart from Terminal 2 at Dubai International (DXB) to Kish International Airport (KIH) and Kerman International Airport (KER). Emirates will also codeshare on these routes, enhancing connectivity options for travelers through Dubai's major aviation hub.

The flights to Kish International Airport will be scheduled four times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, while those to Kerman International Airport will operate on Mondays and Thursdays. Hamad Obaidalla, the Chief Commercial Officer at flydubai, expressed enthusiasm about expanding into underserved markets and providing more travel convenience for customers in Iran. Flydubai is committed to fostering trade and tourism, and with the addition of Kerman and Kish Island to its network, it aims to offer passengers more exploration opportunities.

Flydubai currently serves over 125 destinations, including 90 previously underserved markets without direct links to Dubai. The airline has also started daily services to Islamabad and Lahore in Pakistan today. In the coming months, flydubai plans to extend its services to Basel, Switzerland starting August 2, Riga, Latvia from October 11, and Tallinn, Estonia and Vilnius, Lithuania from October 12.
