Muscat: Dubai-based flydubai has announced the launch of business class services, following feedback from its passengers, across its network of 60 destinations.
flydubai currently offers 28 flights per week to Muscat, making it one of the airlines' highest frequency routes. "We noticed a great demand for this service not only from those travelling for leisure or to visit friends and family, but also from business passengers.
Offering frequent, affordable flights will make it easier for business passengers to travel between Muscat and Dubai within the course of a day," a spokesperson for flydubai said.
From the last week of May, flydubai began its flights to Salalah in the Sultanate of Oman, from Dubai. It currently operates three flights a week.
"With Oman just next door to the UAE, there is a long history of tourism and trade between our countries. Through this new service, we hope to further enhance these ties and make it easier and more convenient to travel between Dubai and Salalah. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in enabling us to fly to Salalah for the support and encouragement they have given flydubai," Obaidalla, flydubai's Chief Commercial Officer, said at the launch ceremony.
Passengers of flight FZ729 to Kiev's Boryspil Airport, Ukraine were the first to experience the carrier's new product offering, recently. According to travel agents, the airline will launch the business class on the Muscat to Dubai route in February 2014.
While flydubai offers its Business Class passengers a variety of customised services, including a dedicated Business Team, priority check-in and a fast track through immigration, it is in the air that the experience can be fully appreciated.
The new Business Class cabin comprises 12 spacious and comfortable reclining seats, made of Italian leather, and a seat pitch of 42 inches. A revolutionary in-flight entertainment system comes with a high definition touchscreen of 12.1 inches with a choice of 1,300 hours of non-stop entertainment.
