On Thursday (December 9, 2021), flydubai announced the signing of a new interline agreement with Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). The agreement will provide greater options for passengers traveling between Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates and beyond on the carrier’s combined networks. The agreement will allow PIA to sell seats beyond Dubai to nine destinations on the flydubai network including Almaty, Bahrain, Baku, Baghdad, Istanbul, Kuwait, Mashhad, Moscow and Najaf. Likewise, flydubai will be able to sell seats on PIA’s flights between Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar connecting in Dubai and anywhere on flydubai’s network. flydubai has offered service to Pakistan since 2010, with the launch of service to Karachi. Currently, the Dubai-based airline offers service to five points in Pakistan including Karachi, Faisalabad, Multan, Quetta and Sialkot.


In Thursday’s announcement, flydubai’s Chief Executive Officer, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said,


“We would like to thank the Authorities and PIA for giving us the opportunity to further strengthen travel and trade links between the UAE and Pakistan. Over the years, our two countries have laid strong foundations of mutually beneficial trade relations, friendship and successful cooperation. The new interline will allow more passengers to benefit from easier connections on our established network in the GCC, Central Asia and Central and Eastern Europe, while adding more options to travel to Pakistan with PIA from the UAE and the region.”


Also commenting on the new interline agreement, Pakistan International Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer, Air Marshal Arshad Malik, said,


“The pandemic has hit the Commercial Aviation industry the hardest and airlines all over the world are looking at opportunities to cooperate and collaborate in order to mitigate the adverse effects of the global virus. In this perspective, we are pleased to see the commencement of interline cooperation between PIA and flydubai. This is indeed a great opportunity for us to join hands with flydubai, by connecting Pakistan to Dubai and around the globe, and expanding reach to more destinations for convenience of our valued passengers. This interline partnership is a first step to build logical commercial development for both carriers. It will enable both the carriers to cater to the strong customer demand for business and leisure travel between Dubai and Pakistan and beyond by providing our mutual customers a seamless travel experience.”


flydubai has grown their network to over 100 destinations across 50 countries in Africa, Central Asia, the Caucuses, Central and South-East Europe, the GCC and the Middle East, and the Indian Subcontinent. The carrier has opened more than 70 new routes that did not previously have direct air links to Dubai or were not served by a UAE carrier. Flydubai operates a single fleet type 55 Boeing 737s. Guests booking a flight with flydubai to Dubai will also enjoy a complimentary 1-Day ticket to visit Expo 2020 Dubai, which opened on October 1st and will operate through March 2022.
