Whether you want to connect to another flydubai flight or to another airline, flydubai can help.
You can transfer in Dubai to another flydubai flight without collecting your baggage in Dubai and without a UAE visa using our flydubai connect service.
So, for example, if you want to fly from Kuwait to Khartoum via Dubai, choose your destination of origin and your final destination when you search for a flight.
You'll get a booking confirmation for Kuwait to Dubai and Dubai to Khartoum. You check your baggage in at Kuwait and pick it up in Khartoum. See the flydubai baggage policy.
When you reach Dubai, go to the flydubai connect desk where your boarding pass and travel documents will be checked.
As business class is not available on all flydubai flights, you cannot book to travel in business class on all connecting flydubai flights.
If business class is available on both flydubai flights on a connection, we will offer a business class booking on these flights. If business class is not available on one of the legs in a connection, we cannot offer you a combination of business and economy bookings and your entire journey will be booked in economy class.
If you've bought a ticket with Emirates and part of your journey is with flydubai, you can pick up your baggage at your final destination – you won't have to collect it in Dubai.
At some airports you’ll get a boarding pass for your entire journey, but at others you’ll only be given your boarding pass for your journey to Dubai. Emirates will give you another boarding pass in Dubai for your onward journey.
If you arrive on an Emirates flight, go to the central transfer desk in Terminal 3 (transfer desk K).
If you arrive on a flydubai flight, go to the transfer desk in Terminal 2.
You'll be given a boarding pass for your onward journey if you weren't given one when you checked in at the start of your journey.
Please note: the Minimum Connection Time (MCT) is 120 minutes between Terminal 2 and Terminal 3.
To transfer in Dubai to or from a flydubai flight, you'll need to make two separate bookings: one on flydubai and one on another airline.
When you arrive at the check-in desk, tell the agent you're transferring onto another flight in Dubai. You'll need to show confirmation of your onward booking and/or ticket and your travel documents. Once your documents have been checked, your baggage will be tagged for Dubai.
If you're travelling on another airline, your boarding pass for your connecting flight will be issued at the Dnata transfer desk in arrivals at Dubai International Airport.
When you reach Dubai, go to the dnata transfer desk, where you'll be checked-in for your next flight.
If you’re connecting with an airline with which flydubai has got an interline agreement and your baggage is tagged through to your final destination, your baggage will be transferred at no additional cost.
If your baggage is not tagged through to your final destination or if you’re travelling with an airline with which flydubai does not have an interline agreement, you’ll need to pay a baggage transfer fee to dnata.
Please note that the above does not apply to flight connections of more than 24 hours.
At the dnata transfer desk, you'll need to show your:
You'll need to pay for any excess baggage. See the flydubai baggage policy.
You need to make sure there’s enough transfer time in Dubai to connect to your next flight.
flydubai won't be responsible:
If you're connecting to or from another airline, you'll need to contact them to confirm that they'll allow you to connect with flydubai.
Below you'll find the list of airlines that have interline agreement with flydubai.
