Flydubai plans to increase frequencies on its flights to both Ljubljana and Zagreb this winter season which begins on October 29 and runs until March 30, 2024. The Dubai-based airline will initially run four weekly rotations to the Slovenian capital during the winter season, with additional services in early November, however, from December 18, the carrier will increase frequencies to daily which will be maintained for the remainder of the winter. “We see Ljubljana as a great opportunity. We will continue to work closely with the Slovenian Tourist Board and the government, as we believe that Slovenia is also a very interesting and attractive tourist destination for our residents”, Flydubai said.
The carrier also plans to up its frequencies to Zagreb, with a total of five weekly services. During the last week of the year, a total of six weekly flights are planned, in order to cater for increased demand around the Christmas and New Year holiday period, after which the service will return to five weekly rotations. Last winter season, Flydubai maintained four weekly services between the two cities. Emirates codeshares on both flights to Ljubljana and Zagreb. Flydubai uses Emirates’ Terminal 3 at Dubai Airport on both routes, rather than the low cost Terminal 2, enabling more seamless connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub.
During 2022, Flydubai handled a total of 50.771 passengers on its Zagreb operations. On the other hand, the airline welcomed 45.263 travellers on its Ljubljana flights. Apart from Ljubljana and Zagreb, the hybrid carrier will maintain double daily flights to Belgrade throughout the winter, as well as four weekly flights to Sarajevo. Over this coming winter season, Flydubai will feature its new business class product on select routes on its Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. Although the airline has not outlined which destinations will feature the new premium cabins, Belgrade, Ljubljana and Zagreb all stand a good chance of boasting the new product. The Business Suite (pictured below), designed exclusively for single-aisle aircraft, will see ten suites with a sliding suite door introduced to a number of the carrier’s aircraft before the end of 2023. The new seat will offer all passengers in business class direct aisle access, which rivals the business class experience on board many wide-body aircraft.
