Flydubai will launch 5X-weekly Dubai-Naples (Italy) services from June 4, 2019, becoming the first UAE carrier to offer direct flights to Naples as the Dubai-based LCC expands its European network.

Daily Dubai-Budapest (Hungary) services will start June 27. The Budapest services will be in addition to the current service offered by Emirates Airline.

Dubai-based Emirates will codeshare on both routes as part of the Emirates-flydubai partnership announced in July 2017.

Both routes will be operated with Boeing 737 MAX 8 and the flights depart from Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport (DXB), offering seamless connectivity to Emirates flights.

Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “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.”
