The low-cost carrier from the UAE announced its intention to launch or resume flights to Salzburg, Malta, Catania and Naples, from May. “We continue to gradually grow our network catering to an increasing demand for travel, as more passengers return to the skies,” says flydubai CEO.
The carrier becomes the first UAE-based carrier to offer direct flights between Dubai International (DXB) and Salzburg Airport (SZG) from 13 May 2021, with a four weekly flights service.
As of May 12th, the carrier will also launch 4 flights a week to Malta International Airport (MLA) and Catania International Airport (CTA) in Sicily, while flights to Naples International Airport (NAP) will resume the day after, with a three times weekly service. With these new routes, flydubai will operate a network of 20 European destinations, using a fleet of Boeing 737-800.
“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,” says the carrier CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith.
Emirates, the UAE flag carrier, will codeshare on these routes with flyduabi, and the flights will operate from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB), offering travelers more seamless connections to 155 destinations between both carriers, with flydubai expanding its network to 66 destinations, once flight restrictions are lifted.
