The Greek island is among the six new destinations to join the Dubai-based airline’s network, along with Cagliari, Krabi, Milan, Pattaya and Hofuf.
Since the start of 2022, flydubai has launched flights to more than 20 destinations, including Pisa and Catania in Italy, Osh in Kyrgyzstan as well as Samarkand and Namangan in Uzbekistan.
The addition of the six new routes will see the flydubai network expand to 113 destinations in 53 countries. This will represent the largest number of destinations the carrier will serve since it began operations in 2009.
The new flights to Cagliari, Corfu, Krabi, Milan and Pattaya will begin from 2023. The resumption of flights to Hofuf, Saudi Arabia, will start from 24 November 2022.
Commenting on the launch of flights to new destinations in Greece and Italy, Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, said the company is pleased to see its network in Europe grow.
“We are excited to announce the launch of year-round flights to Milan in Italy and seasonal summer flights to Corfu in Greece and Cagliari in Italy… Over the years, we have continued to see increased demand to and from the region and we look forward to providing our passengers with exceptional travel experiences,” he said.
The new flights will operate from Terminal 2 and 3 in Dubai International (DXB). Emirates will codeshare on the routes offering passengers more options for connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub.
