Dec 10 2017

flydubai has announced the launch of two new European routes for next year: flights to Krakow will start on April 8, 2018, whereas flights to Catania will start on June 13, 2018. With these new flights, flydubai has become the first UAE carrier to operate direct flights to these destinations, offering weekly flights.

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.

flydubai further diversifies its network by opening up direct air links to Italy. Flights to Catania will start in June 2018 and mark the first time the Dubai-based carrier operates flights to the South of Europe.

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.

Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President Commercial (UAE, EU, ME, CIS) at flydubai, added: “flydubai will be the first UAE carrier to offer direct flights to Krakow and Catania and we are excited to start operations to the South of Europe for the first time. We have seen increasing demand for our summer destinations this year, so we decided to expand our offering with these new routes. We look forward to start the flights to Krakow and Catania and the new opportunities the new routes will provide for trade and tourism.”
