flydubai increases its Europe connectivity

flydubai has announced the launch of two new European routes for next year. The Krakow route will commence on 8 April 2018 and flights to Catania will start on 13 June 2018. The airline becomes first UAE carrier to operate direct flights to these destinations, offering weekly flights.

With the launch of these new European routes, flydubai’s network grows to over 100 destinations in 47 countries.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said: “Our latest route launches demonstrate our efforts in offering our passengers more options to explore our network especially as we see more connecting traffic onto our network as a result of our interline and codeshare agreements.”

Flights to Krakow will start in April 2018 and will further grow the carrier’s Eastern and Central European network, which includes Belgrade, Bratislava, Bucharest, Prague, Skopje, Sarajevo and Sofia. The airline’s European network includes 24 destinations.

Emirates will codeshare on both routes and 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.

The new routes will be operated with a brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8.
