flydubai, the world's fastest-growing start-up airline, has chosen Citibank as its international banking partner.

Dubai's first low-cost carrier recently announced new routes to Ufa and Kazan in Russia, expanding its global route network to 43 destinations across the GCC, Middle East, North Africa, Indian subcontinent, Asia and the fringes of Europe.

"flydubai is fast becoming a force to be reckoned in the global aviation industry," said Sanjoy Sen, Citibank's Consumer Bank Head for Middle East, Pakistan and North Africa. "With its passenger numbers growing 200% in just two years, the brand has become popular quickly."

Citibank PremierMiles members and Citi Life Credit Card holders will now have direct access to flydubai flights and services through the CitiMiles and CitiDollars loyalty programs. Members can convert their CitiMiles and CitiDollars into flydubai vouchers to purchase flydubai products and services.

"This agreement is another addition to Citibank's growing loyalty programs, which aim to give customers increased flexibility when redeeming points across a range of services, including travel plans," said Sen.
