flydubai, the Dubai-based carrier, has announced it will be operating three flights to Poznan in Poland from 29 October 2023, becoming the first UAE carrier to operate direct flights from Dubai.
The start of flydubai’s three-times weekly service to Poznan expands the carrier’s network in Poland to three destinations including Krakow and the Polish capital, Warsaw.
Flights to Poznań Airport (POZ) will operate from Terminal 2 at Dubai International (DXB) on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. flydubai also operates a daily service to Warsaw and a five-weekly service to Krakow, which will increase to a daily service from 26 June 2023.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, said that they have been witnessing growing demand for travel between the UAE and Poland since the start of its operations to the market in 2018 with the launch of its services to Krakow.
“We are pleased to see our network expand to three points with the launch of flights to Poznan which will offer our passengers more options for travel to Poland and open opportunities for more trade and tourism. flydubai is committed to enhancing connectivity between different cultures and we look forward to strengthening links between the two countries,” Al Ghait said.
The UAE and Poland strengthened their relationship with a joint economic programme in 2022 that promotes bilateral business and investment opportunities between the two nations, collaborating in sectors including renewable energy, advanced technologies, agriculture, transportation, and tourism.
Commenting on the route launch announcement, Grzegorz Bykowski, Chief Executive Office at Poznań Airport, said that the flydubai’s announcement to launch direct flights between Poznań and Dubai is a milestone for the development of the network of connections from Poznań Airport.
Direct flights to Dubai mean that residents of Poznań, Wielkopolska and all of Western Poland have access to flydubai’s wide network of 120 destinations in 52 countries, he said.
“The new route announcement opens up completely new travel opportunities from Poznań, which we expect to generate additional passenger flows supporting both tourist and business traffic to this part of the world,” he added.
As one of Poland’s oldest cities, Poznan is known for its rich history and grand architecture, including the Renaissance Old Town. Located in the west-central part of the country, the city today has become a major economic, trade and tourism hub.
Flights will operate three times a week between Terminal 2 at Dubai International (DXB) and Poznań Airport (POZ) from 29 October 2023 on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
