Flydubai will restart operations to Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland, from August 10.

The three-times weekly service to Hargeisa Egal International Airport (HGA) will grow the Dubai carrier’s African network to 12 points in nine countries.

Flydubai will become the first carrier to operate to Hargeisa from Dubai as it continues to open up underserved markets and expand its presence in Africa. The airline also has plans to relaunch its operations to Uganda in the coming few weeks.
