New service offers convenient and affordable shipments from regional airports

Dubai, UAE: flydubai, Dubai's innovative airline, has announced the launch of flydubai Cargo in Russia, providing an affordable and convenient outbound cargo service to complement the existing inbound service.

flydubai operates regular flights from four Russian cities: Kazan, Samara, Ufa and Yekaterinburg, to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Goods are shipped on its fleet of brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said: "Russia is an important market for flydubai and the start of our cargo operations reinforces our commitment to providing a wider range of affordable services. We are confident that through enabling regional businesses to ship their goods directly to Dubai, and further afield, it will assist in developing new trade links between our countries and allowing a greater range of goods, including perishable items, to be transported."

flydubai Cargo, which started operations on 01 January 2012, transports a range of goods including perishable items, textiles, electronics, courier items, pharmaceuticals and general cargo. Companies often have to ship goods via Moscow as there are no direct air links in many regions, which can limit the range of goods traded. But now, perishable items in addition to spare parts and other in-demand items can be sent directly to Dubai and beyond quickly and efficiently. Once in Dubai, shipments can be connected between flydubai flights within one hour or from eight hours to interline partners.

For enquiries about flydubai Cargo, call +971 4 603 3772 (lines are open from 8am to 5pm Sunday-Thursday). Local contact numbers for points across the network are listed in the cargo section on flydubai.com. You can also contact flydubai Cargo by email on cargo@flydubai.com. Emails will be responded to within 48 hours.
