Dubai-based flydubai launched a new holidays division last month. The online portal is designed to be a one-stop shop for passengers to browse for and book their holiday packages consisting of flights and hotels, with the option to add ancillary services.
Commenting on the launch, Hamad Obaidalla, chief commercial officer of flydubai, said: “The launch of flydubai’s Holidays division marks yet another milestone in our growth story and our continued investment in providing customers with an enhanced travel experience along every touchpoint of their journey.”
By combining internally sourced wholesale hotel rates and rates provided by third parties with competitive airfares, Holidays by flydubai offers competitive travel packages. Customers will also have the option to add ancillary services to their holiday experience, including airport transfers, sightseeing packages, UAE visa facilitation, car rental and excursions.
Nelson D’souza, vice-president – Holidays, commented on the launch: “Booking with holidays.flydubai.com puts our passengers in control of their entire holiday experience as they can purchase tailormade packages that suit all budgets with a single booking process. The portal already gives passengers access to thousands of hotel options and other add-ons through our partners. We look forward to rolling out more options in the future.”
The website is fully responsive across three breakpoints (desktop, tablet and smartphone) and is available in three languages – English, Arabic and Russian.
