flydubai Resumes Operation to Taif in Saudi Arabia
The airline continues to grow its network to other destinations in Saudi Arabia
Dubai, UAE, 12 April 2022: flydubai, the Dubai-based airline, has announced today that flights to Taif in Saudi Arabia will commence on 15 April with a daily service. This brings the number of destinations served by the carrier in the Kingdom to seven.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, said: “we are pleased to see our network grow to offer more than 95 unique destinations. The network expansion has been supported by our growing fleet as we continue to take delivery of more aircraft over the next few months. We look forward to welcoming passengers back on our flights to Taif and thank the authorities for their continuous support.”
Taif is located less than 100 kilometres east of Mecca in a valley on the eastern side of the Hejaz mountains. The millennia-old city is a favourite summer destination for those looking for the pleasant weather offered by the altitude. Due its cooler climate and fertile land, the region earned its title of "Garden of the Hejaz”. Known as the City of Roses, more than 900 rose farms produce over 300 million flowers every spring.
flydubai has built a network of more than 95 destinations in 50 countries served by a young fleet of 63 Boeing 737 aircraft. With the resumption of daily flights to Taif, flydubai’s network in Saudi Arabia has now grown to seven destinations including AlUla, Dammam, Jeddah, Madinah, Riyadh, and Yanbu.
flydubai’s passenger experience has been redesigned to enable travel in a safe environment that minimizes crew and passenger contact and offers passengers the confidence to travel at every step of their journey.
Passengers are required to make sure that they are up to date with the regulations from the IATA Travel Centre and the IATA destination tracker for their whole journey and follow the guidance issued by the authorities and the airline.
