FlyDubai is the new budget airline being launched by the Dubai Government (with support from Emirates Airlines apparently). They announced their first destinations and ticket prices today, the Fly Dubai website went live at 3pm UAE time (according to reports I heard, I don't know for sure). I tried to make a booking, well tried to start one at least just to see what happened. It worked fine but I noticed the flight durations are substantially longer on the booking results page than on the time table page. Perhaps part of the budget price deal is that you have to walk part of the way? Details updated on the Fly Dubai page.
Daily flights Dubai to Beirut start on 01 June 2009, flight times about 3 and a half hours, or after booking that increases to 4 1/2 hours going and 11 1/2 hours coming back
Daily flights Dubai to Amman start on 02 June 2009, flight times about 3 and a half hours, or after booking increases to 4 1/2 hours going and just over 11 hours coming back
Prices were AED 250-300 if you want to pay to change, or AED 450-500 if you want to have a free change option for DXB to BEY
Coming back is AED 370 or AED 570.
DXB to AMM was AED 250-300 or AED 450-500 going
Coming back is AED 410 or AED 610.
I guess prices will increase as you get closer to departure dates when booking (Air Arabia and other budget airlines do that).
What are the next destinations for FlyDubai going to be?
