flydubai has cancelled flights to Kazakhstan’s capital Almaty till January 8 due to violent protests rocking the Central Asian country and the government declaring a state of emergency in Almaty.

In Almaty, protests continued on Thursday following a fuel price increase that resulted in the deaths of eight people earlier this week. As protesters tried to storm the government offices again on Thursday, police clashed with them. A police official confirmed on Thursday that dozens of people had been killed as part of the attacks.

After the violent protests, Kazakhstan’s president Kassym-Jomart Tokayev accepted the resignation of the government.

As a result of the situation in Almaty in Kazakhstan, flydubai flights FZ 737/8 and FZ 1721/2 between Dubai and Almaty have been cancelled through January 8, 2022. Due to the volatile political situation in the Central Asian country, the Dubai-based low-cost carrier cancelled flights on January 5 and 6.
