flydubai will operate up to five flights a week to Naples from June 04, 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).
Commenting on the launch, Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO, of flydubai, said: “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.”
To offer passengers more comfort and an enhanced travel experience, flydubai will operate the new routes on the brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8. The new cabin offering features a flat-bed in business class and in addition to the extra space and privacy, passengers can sleep comfortably during their flight.
