Latakia will be flydubai’s third Syrian destination, after Damascus and Aleppo, and is the fifth new route to be announced by the airline this month.
The four weekly service will begin on Sunday, June 20 and will take the airline’s network to 18 destinations. Prices for Latakia will start from AED 350 for one way fare including all taxes and charges and one piece of hand luggage.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, flydubai’s CEO said: “Adding Latakia to our existing routes of Damascus and Aleppo, demonstrates the importance of Syria as a key destination to flydubai. Thanks to flydubai, Dubai’s growing Syrian expatriate population and the 500,000-strong community in Latakia now have even better access to quality, safe and low-cost air travel.”
Latakia is Syria’s busiest and most modern seaport located to the south west of the urban centre of Aleppo and has been an important trading and agricultural hub since ancient times, known for its tobacco, cotton and fruit exports.
The city is also increasingly gaining a reputation as a first-class tourism destination, thanks to its pristine beaches, picturesque mountains and rich archaeological heritage.
FZ233 to Latakia will depart from Dubai at 1130hrs and land at 1400hrs local time. FZ234 returns at 1510hrs local time and reaches Dubai at 1930hrs.
