Dubai-based airline, flydubai, has announced the start of flights to Budapest in Hungary and Naples in Italy.
The airline will operate up to five flights a week to Naples from June 4, 2019, becoming the first UAE carrier to offer direct flights. Daily flights to Budapest will start on June 27, 2019, and will be in addition to the current service offered by Emirates. Emirates will codeshare on both routes and further illustrates the strength of the partnership which aims to provide more options for travel to passengers. Both routes will operate from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB). Flydubai will operate the new routes on the brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8.
"We are delighted to be launching flights to Budapest and Naples. These destinations provide our passengers with more choice on our network while reaffirming our commitment to the vision set by us to create free flows of tourism and strengthen direct airlinks with the UAE," said Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai.
"Budapest and Naples are important centres for commerce, trade and industry and are incredibly popular leisure destinations, especially during the summer," said Jeyhun Efendi, SVP of Commercial Operations and E-commerce for flydubai. "Making these destinations more accessible to travellers looking for new places to explore will undoubtedly stimulate traffic flows and tourism. These new routes provide those in Hungary and Italy with the opportunity to explore Dubai and beyond on our network."
Flydubai's route network in Europe currently includes 24 points in Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Turkey, and Ukraine. As part of the Emirates flydubai partnership, each airlines' passengers will have the opportunity to connect in Dubai to hundreds of destinations across the world. For bookings under the codeshare, Emirates passengers receive complimentary meals and the Emirates checked baggage allowance on flights operated by flydubai in Business and Economy classes.
