Flydubai joins Dubai Tourism's first-ever East Africa roadshow

Dubai's low cost carrier flydubai is participating in the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing’s (Dubai Tourism) first-ever East Africa roadshow, joining 14 Dubai-based partners in showcasing a wide range of services and upcoming attractions.
Flydubai will take part in the road show in Kampala on 24th August. The show will then continue to Dar es Salaam on 30th August.
The roadshow provides a platform for local operators to meet directly with the airline and learn first-hand about the services and choices available to passengers when choosing to fly directly to Dubai for business or leisure, the carrier said.
The CEO at Dubai Tourism, Issam Kazim, said, "The potential of Uganda and Tanzania as a source market is positive, and this roadshow provides us with the opportunity to directly interact with the operators here and showcase what Dubai has to offer. We look forward to making long-lasting and fruitful trade relationships during the trip to further grow the tourism market in Uganda for the benefit of all." 
Flydubai currently operates 82 weekly flights to 11 destinations in Africa, including 3 weekly flights to Entebbe and 4 weekly flights to Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar, he added.
