Dubai's first low cost airline Flydubai has added a new destination to its list after its inaugural flight touched down. Aleppo, Syria will be Flydubai's newest destination for interested travelers, and will be the carrier's fifth operational destination since the company launched six weeks ago. The company already flies to Beirut, Amman, Damascus and Alexandria.

Syria is the first country to have two Flydubai routes with Aleppo catering to passengers in the north and Damascus to those in the south. The Aleppo flights will operate daily to accommodate the summer period and from August 31 will be flying four times per week.
