Dubai-based low-cost carrier flydubai has started selling tickets for regular passenger flights to Pakistan and India, along with other international destinations, with effect from May 21.
Flydubai is the second UAE-based airline after Air Arabia that has opened ticket sales for regular flights. Air Arabia is selling tickets for regular flights with effect from June 1.
A flydubai agent confirmed to Gulf News that sale of tickets for regular flights, starting May 21, has already opened. He, however, clarified that flight departure was conditional to circumstances.
About refunds against bookings in case the flights do not take off, the agent said: “Customers will have two options. They can either rebook or take vouchers as refund. There will be no cash refund.”
Taking advantage of the situation, many travel agents in the UAE have started selling tickets for both Flydubai and Air Arabia flights.
However, they are still not sure whether these flights will actually take off.
