Flydubai has just expanded its network in Southeast Asia, adding some exciting new destinations for travellers to explore.

Are you looking to explore a new, hidden gem in Southeast Asia? Then Penang and Langkawi need to be on your list. Malaysia is a country popular for its nightlife, and amazing food culture. One thing that travellers often tend to overlook, however, is the beautiful islands in the country. Now, with flydubai expanding its network, travellers have the benefit of exploring Penang and Langkawi on a budget.

The Dubai-based carrier integrated its operations in Langkawi and Penang on the 10th of February 2024. In addition to celebrating the first flight to the destinations on flydubai, these inaugural flights were also on the first day of the Chinese New Year.

We are pleased to see our presence grow in Southeast Asia with the addition of Penang and Langkawi to our growing network. flydubai remains committed to opening up underserved markets and with the start of our daily service, we look forward to offering our passangers more opportunities to explore the beautiful regions, says Sudhir Sreedharan – Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations (UAE, GCC, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent) at flydubai.

flydubai is the first carrier to serve the airports in Langkawi and Penang with a daily service from Dubai. The airline will touch down in Penang at the Penang International Airport (PEN). For those looking to fly to Langkawi, the airline touches down at Langwaki International Airport (LGK).

In addition to these two beautiful destinations, travellers can also explore Krabi and Pattaya in Thailand through flydubai. flydubai is set to operate its latest crafts to these routes.
