Asma - | UAE

Flydubai has announced the commencement of its services to Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia, effective February 10.

The inaugural flights, coinciding with the first day of the Chinese New Year, touched down at Penang International Airport and Langkawi International Airport, where they were greeted with traditional water cannon salutes and in the presence of local authorities' representatives. Flydubai now holds the distinction of being the first national carrier to operate daily flights to these two airports from Dubai.

With the launch of flights to Penang and Langkawi, Flydubai is expanding its network in Southeast Asia to four destinations across two countries, including Krabi and Pattaya in Thailand.

Sudhir Sridharan, Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations (UAE, GCC, Africa, and Indian Subcontinent) at Flydubai, expressed his satisfaction with the expansion into Southeast Asia, emphasizing Flydubai's commitment to opening up previously underserved markets and providing passengers with more opportunities to explore the region.

YP Wong Hon Wai, Executive Director of Tourism and Creative Economy for the state of Penang, welcomed Flydubai's entry into Penang and Langkawi, noting the significance of Flydubai's flights as the first new direct airline service to the airports in the current year. He expressed confidence in the route's potential to become a popular international destination from Penang and extended gratitude to Flydubai for its efforts in promoting Penang as a preferred destination for global travelers.

Flydubai's flights to Langkawi will operate via a brief stop in Penang, providing travelers from the UAE and various regions with convenient travel options to explore these sought-after destinations. Flights will operate daily from Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 to Penang International Airport and Langkawi International Airport starting on February 10, 2024.

Flydubai offers competitive round-trip prices for both business and economy class passengers, starting at 11,000 dirhams and 2,700 dirhams, respectively, for Dubai to Penang and 11,000 dirhams and 3,500 dirhams, respectively, for Dubai to Langkawi.

These new Malaysian destinations, according to Flydubai, offer a blend of heritage, adventure, and relaxation. Penang boasts cultural richness and modern charm, with George Town renowned for its UNESCO-listed vibrant street arts, colonial architecture, and diverse cuisine. Meanwhile, Langkawi's beaches and breathtaking landscapes provide an ideal tropical getaway for beach enthusiasts.
