Dubai-based airline, flydubai, will be adding four new European destinations, including Catania and Naples in Italy, Salzburg in Austria and Malta, to its network from May 2021.
With these new cities, flydubai will have expanded the number of destinations it flies to from Dubai to over 65, of which 20 are located in Europe.
Flydubai flights to Malta International Airport (MLA) and Catania International Airport (CTA) will begin on May 12, 2021. The airline will operate four flights a week.
It will start flights to Naples International Airport (NAP) from May 13, 2021, as a thrice weekly service.
Flydubai will also become the first UAE-based carrier to offer direct flights between Dubai International (DXB) and Salzburg Airport (SZG), beginning May 13, 2021, with flights operated four times a week.
Emirates will codeshare on these routes and the flights will operate from Terminal 3 at DXB.
Flydubai recently launched a new service that allows passengers to bid for an upgrade to Business Class before their next flight.
Emirates Skywards is a shared loyalty programme for both Emirates and flydubai customers.
“With the start of flights to Catania, Malta, Naples and Salzburg we continue to gradually grow our network catering to an increasing demand for travel, as more passengers return to the skies and more countries ease restrictions on international air travel,” said Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO at flydubai.
