The low cost airline's India network expands with flights to Hyderabad
Dubai, UAE: flydubai, Dubai's first low cost airline, today announced its much anticipated second destination in India, the City of Pearls, Hyderabad. The airline's 37th destination will provide a low cost option from Dubai to one of the fastest-growing cities in the world and will open up Southern India to travellers on flydubai's rapidly expanding network.
Flights to Hyderabad will operate three times per week and will start on June 11th, giving the 1.4 million-strong Indian expat community in the UAE a timely yet low-cost connection to their home country during the peak summer holiday season.
flydubai CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: "We are delighted to announce Hyderabad as our latest destination. There is a huge Indian community in the UAE and one of the reasons flydubai was established was to provide low cost, quality links to places the expat community in the UAE wish to travel to. Hyderabad is an important new route for flydubai and goes a long way in our efforts to fulfil that commitment. While our Lucknow route provides a gateway to North and Central lndia; our Hyderabad route will be a low-cost connection to South India, benefiting not only the Indian expat population in the UAE but also bringing increased tourism and business opportunities to this historic city."
With historical roots and modern ambitions, Hyderabad is symbolic of 21st century India. Known as the "City of Pearls", thanks to a 200-year old trade in pearls once patronized by the Nizams or Mughal rulers, Hyderabad today is fast gaining currency as an IT hub, housing global players like Google and Microsoft, as well as home-grown brands Wipro and TCS. Also, as the centre of Mughlai cuisine, Hyderabad is responsible for introducing the famous Hyderabadi Biriyani to the world.
Flight FZ435 to Hyderabad will depart Dubai Terminal 2 at 2030hrs, arriving in Hyderabad at 0145hrs local time. The return flight FZ436 will depart Hyderabad at 0230hrs, landing back in Dubai at 0440hrs.
