Dubai-based flydubai is participating in the first edition of the Uzbekistan Aviation Airports Logistics Forum in Tashkent providing the airline with an opportunity to mark its first successful year of operations to the Uzbek market. The airline has carried more than 70,000 passengers between the Uzbek capital and Dubai since it launched flights in March 2019.

Commenting on flydubai’s participation in the exhibition Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, said: “We are pleased to see growing demand for travel in our first year of operations to Uzbekistan. Our passengers from Tashkent are principally enjoying the benefit of direct flights to Dubai. They can however seamlessly connect onwards to flydubai’s network of 94 destinations and with our codeshare partnership with Emirates there is the opportunity to explore a further 143 destinations. Members of the travel trade industry attending the forum would be welcome to visit our stand and hear more about the opportunities to explore the world as flydubai continues to change the way people travel whether flying in Business or Economy Class.”
