Dubai-based carrier flydubai has announced that it will begin flights to the Hungarian capital of Budapest and Naples in Italy.
In a statement on Wednesday, the airline said it will operate up to five flights a week to Napes from June 4, while daily flights to Budapest will begin on June 27 in addition to the current flights being offered by Emirates.
Emirates will codeshare on both routes, which will operate from Dubai International’s Terminal 3.
“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 air links with the UAE,” said flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith.
Jeyhun Efendi, flydubai’s senior vice president for commercial operations and e-commerce, said that “Budapest and Naples are important centres for commerce, trade and industry and are incredibly popular leisure destinations, especially during the summer.”
“Making these destinations more accessible to travellers looking for new places to explore will undoubtedly stimulate traffic flows and tourism,” he added. “These new routes provide those in Hungary and Italy with the opportunity to explore Dubai and beyond on our network.”
flydubai’s European route network currently includes 24 points in Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Macedonia (FYROM), Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Turkey and Ukraine.\
