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 these six routes will see the flydubai network expand to 113 destinations in 53 countries.

Commenting on the expansion of the airline’s network, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, said: “I am very proud to see our network grow bigger than ever. Dubai’s aviation industry has made a swift recovery, and our agility combined with our strong business model has enabled us to grow our operations and to achieve this significant milestone. With 113 destinations now available to book, we look forward to offering our passengers more options for travel across our ever-growing network.”
Milan is the second largest city in Italy and is one of the largest shopping and tourism destinations in Europe while Cagliari is the capital city of Sardinia and is well-known for its many historical monuments and beautiful beaches. The Greek island of Corfu has become popular for its stunning landscapes, rich multi-cultural heritage, crystal-clear seas and cosmopolitan Old Town.
Commenting on the launch of flights to these destinations, Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, said: “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. We are pleased to see our network in Europe grow and to serve five destinations 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.”
Krabi and Pattaya in Thailand are popular holiday destinations for beach goers and adventures alike. Krabi offers beautiful beaches, striking limestone cliffs and dense mangrove forests while Pattaya is distinguished by its resorts and hotels that overlook Pattaya Bay and its lively atmosphere.
Sudhir Sreedharan, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations (UAE, GCC, Subcontinent and Africa) at flydubai, added: “we are delighted to offer our passengers more options for travel with our new flights to Krabi and Pattaya. Thailand has always been a popular choice, particularly with passengers from the GCC, CIS and Europe.
