Dubai-based flydubai announced the launch of flights to Krabi in Thailand and Yangon in Myanmar, expanding its network to Southeast Asia. The new daily flights are codeshared with Emirates and will operate from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB) starting from 10 December 2019.

Krabi International Airport (KBV) serves as a gateway to Krabi province in southern Thailand and neighbouring regions like Malaysia and Singapore. With the launch of the daily service, which is operated via a stop in Yangon in Myanmar, flydubai becomes the first UAE national carrier to offer flights to Krabi. The new direct flights to Yangon International Airport (RGN) will also give passengers easier access to the largest city and commercial centre of Myanmar.

Krabi

The innovative partnership with Emirates, which has been in place since 2017, goes beyond code-sharing and includes integrated network collaboration with coordinated scheduling. Earlier this year, flydubai inaugurated its operations to Naples, complimenting the existing Emirates network in Italy. Similarly, the new flights to Krabi will give passengers more options to fly to Thailand which is already accessible from the UAE with flights to Bangkok and Phuket with Emirates.

Krabi

Krabi is a popular holiday destination for beach goers and adventures alike. While limestone cliffs, dense mangrove forests and the famous Phi Phi Island will amaze nature enthusiasts, Krabi also offers activities like diving, hiking or exploring the Huay Toh Waterfall in Phanom Bencha National Park.

Yangoon

As the largest city in Myanmar, Yangon is known for its fascinating mix of colonial architecture, and a modern high-rise skyline, combined with traditional pagodas. One of Yangon’s most famous landmarks is the Shwedagon Paya, a gold shimmering pagoda complex, which is one of Buddhism’s most sacred sites.
