Dubai-based car­rier fly­dubai has re­vealed that it will now op­er­ate twice a week flights to Sochi in Rus­sia. Be­gin­ning from the 7 June 2019, the ad­di­tion of Sochi is the lat­est ad­di­tion to fly­dubai’s Rus­sian net­work, which it has been ac­tive in since 2010.

A pop­u­lar tourist hub lo­cated on the Black Sea, Sochi is favoured with va­ca­tion­ers for its beaches, forests and the Cau­ca­sus Moun­tains. The des­ti­na­tion was also the host for the 2014 Win­ter Olympics.

“Rus­sia is an im­por­tant mar­ket for fly­dubai and we are pleased to an­nounce the new di­rect flights to Sochi which will sup­port the grow­ing flow of travel, trade and tourism be­tween the two coun­tries. We re­main com­mit­ted to open­ing up pre­vi­ously un­der­served mar­kets and to pro­vid­ing more travel op­tions to fly to Dubai and be­yond through one of the world’s busiest travel hubs,” said Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of fly­dubai.

As part of the an­nounce­ment, fly­dubai’s lead­er­ship also con­firmed that Emi­rates will code­share on this route, part of the on­go­ing part­ner­ship be­tween the two airlines that were inked backed in 2017.

At the start of 2019, UAE and the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion inked an agree­ment for a visa-free regime be­tween the two coun­tries. Re­spec­tive pass­port hold­ers can take ad­van­tage of the agree­ment when trav­el­ling be­tween the two coun­tries with a 90 days visa ac­ces­si­ble on ar­rival.

fly­dubai will op­er­ate flights FZ985/986 be­tween Dubai In­ter­na­tional Ter­mi­nal 2 (DXB) and Sochi In­ter­na­tional Air­port on Mon­days and Fri­days.
