FlyDubai will operate 60 daily flights to Qatar as part of the one-day shuttle service to ferry football fans during the FIFA World Cup.

It’s part of a host of Gulf airlines that will “join hands” to organise a “matchday shuttle” service.

Kuwait Airways will add 20 flights a day, while Oman Air will add up to 48 flights and Saudia will operate 40. 

Akbar Al Bakr, CEO of Qatar Airways, explains why they’ve partnered with Fly Dubai and other Gulf carriers to launch one-day shuttle flights, which will start in November.

Earlier on Twitter, Qatar Airways announced: “We’re joining hands with key Gulf Cooperation Council carriers as part of the commitment to make the 1st-ever FIFA World Cup in the Middle East a truly special one.”
