Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, commented on the launch of the company’s Match Day Shuttle service from Dubai World Central (DWC), saying: “It is an exciting day for all those who have been working very hard over the past few months to support the start of these special shuttle flights to Doha. The world’s most thrilling football competition will be played in Doha, and flydubai is pleased to make it easier for more football lovers to go there. There is a real energy at DWC, and I’m pleased to see that eager fans are beginning their world cup trip with us.
Nearly all of our flights heading to Doha International Airport (DIA) this morning and this afternoon were fully booked, and this pattern is destined to continue over the ensuing days and weeks.
I’d like to take this chance to thank Qatar Airways for working with us to make these flights a reality, Dubai Airports for making sure DWC is well-positioned to handle these up to 30 daily flights, and of course the flydubai team who will be working diligently around the clock to support these flights and ensure football fans have a smooth start to their journey. We also thank our customers for choosing flydubai. We are honoured to be a part of this event since it actually affects the entire region, said Al Ghaith.
