FlyDubai Expands UAE-Pakistan Route Network

DALLAS — FlyDubai, the medium-haul airline based in the largest city in the UAE, has announced that it will finally add Islamabad (ISB) and Lahore (LHE), the two significant cities remaining in Pakistan, to its constantly growing network in Central Asia and the Middle East.

As a result, FZ will complement its route offering with its parent airline, Emirates, which already operates 21 weekly frequencies to LHE and ISB with Boeing 777 aircraft.

FlyDubai, on the other hand, will use its modern Boeing 737-8 MAX fleet to connect Dubai (DXB) with the two cities, with one daily frequency to each airport.

From July 2024, the FZ route network between DXB and Pakistan will grow to seven destinations. The carrier has already consolidated flights to Faisalabad (LYP), Karachi (KHI), Multan (MUX), Quetta (UET), and Sialkot (SKT).
