flydubai then drive away
Save money on car rental with exclusive rates anywhere in the world
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – 14 September 2011: flydubai, Dubai’s pioneering low cost airline, has launched a worldwide car rental service which allows passengers to book a vehicle and drive away for less, anywhere in the world.
The service, available through flydubai.com, finds the best rates from more than 650 car rental companies across 35,000 cities and airports in 185 countries.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said: “The launch of our car rental service is another example of how flydubai offers passengers more choice when they travel. This new service makes it more convenient and therefore a little less stressful for people to find some of the most affordable car rental rates no matter where they fly.”
The service, provided in conjunction with CarTrawler, follows the launches earlier this year of the flydubai bus, which provides a direct link between Dubai Terminal 2 and Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, and travel insurance packages.
“We are delighted to be working with such a progressive airline as flydubai,” comments Robin White, Head of Sales with CarTrawler. “A landslide of airlines now clearly recognise that a multi supplier car rental model generates superior revenue to a single supplier model. By working with CarTrawler, flydubai is adding an important revenue stream to its bottom line. It has a strong route network and we are confident car rental will play a key part in customer’s booking choice in the years to come.”
flydubai is dedicated to making travel more accessible and affordable, taking every step to lower costs and pass on those savings to customers. All fares are one way and inclusive of taxes, that includes one piece of hand baggage weighing up to 7kg and a small handbag or laptop bag. Customers then pay for the optional extras they wish to receive, such as checked baggage, which starts at AED50 for 20kgs or a seat with extra legroom for AED100.
The car rental service can be accessed via flydubai’s website (flydubai.com).
Established in March 2008, flydubai is Dubai’s first low-cost airline and the fastest growing start-up airline in the world. Since commencing operations in June 2009, the airline has established an operational route network of 39 destinations across GCC, Middle East, North Africa, Indian Sub-Continent, Asia and the fringes of Europe and has built up a fleet of 19 aircraft. Owned by the government of Dubai, the low-cost carrier supports the city’s commercial and tourism sectors by serving all travellers and providing them with affordable air links to a range of destinations. The airline is dedicated to quality service and comfortable travel, lowering costs by optimising operational efficiencies and offering the passenger more choice.
