Dubai-based airline, flydubai, will resume passenger flights to Sabiha Gökçen Airport in Istanbul from March 2, operating five flights a week.
With the airline already flying daily to Istanbul Airport it increases their frequency to the city to 12 flights a week.
flyDubai’s network to the country also includes services to the capital, Ankara, with two-weekly flights.
Commenting on the relaunch of their operations, Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, highlighted how Sabiha Gökçen Airport is vital as it “provides another convenient option for those travelling to Istanbul”.
“We look forward to welcoming our passengers as they travel with flydubai onboard our Boeing 737 MAX aircraft,” he added.
