Dubai-based low-cost carrier Flydubai will operate its final non-stop flight to Bangkok on Thursday, March 15.
The airline first launched its twice-daily flights between Dubai and Bangkok in November 2016 but earlier this year announced it would be dropping the route.
“In January 2018, Flydubai announced the cancellation of flights to Bangkok and has worked to reaccommodate passengers or arrange a refund,” said a spokesperson for the airline.
Flydubai initially flew its Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the route before replacing it with its new B737 Max 8 – Boeing’s updated version of the 737-800 – on which the airline introduced its new “throne seats” in business class.
Earlier this year, Flydubai unveiled that it would be using the Max 8 to expand its European services, with new non-stop services to Krakow in Poland and Catania in Sicily taking off with the aircraft in April and June this year.
“Flydubai has announced the start of flights to 10 new destinations, which will be launched during the first half of the year,” the spokesperson added.
Business Traveller reviewed Flydubai’s business class seats on the Max 8 earlier this year.
