New destinations include Corfu in Greece and Cagliari in Sicily
Flydubai saw a 50% passenger increase in Q1 compared to the same period in 2022. Following a busy start to the year for the airline, Flydubai has announced plans to ramp up operations for summer from 1 July to 30 September, increasing its capacity by 20% across its network.
The new routes are as follows:
Flydubai has built a network of 120 destinations in 52 countries. More than 75 of these routes did not previously have direct air links to Dubai or were not served by a UAE national carrier from Dubai.
Flydubai chief executive officer Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “We continue to grow our network, launching operations to new underserved routes and adding capacity on existing routes. We have seen a very strong performance since the start of the year, which is a clear reflection of Dubai's position as a global hub for trade and travel and resilience in the face of economic challenges."
Flydubai chief commercial officer Hamad Obaidalla added: “We are pleased to see our operations reach new heights with nine destinations joining our network this summer. This includes popular destinations such as Bodrum, Dubrovnik, Mykonos, Santorini and Tivat as well as new destinations including Corfu in Greece and Cagliari in Sicily.
"We will also increase the flight frequency on a number of routes, including Krabi, Milan-Bergamo, Pattaya and Pisa to name a few, which have proven very popular for travellers from the UAE and across our network.”
