Flydubai adds Greek islands to summer schedule

Santorini and Mykonos will join the low cost airline’s roster of seasonal destinations

Flydubai has announced the launch of two new summer routes. The carrier will operate three weekly flights to Mykonos International Airport (JMK) and Santorini Airport (JTR) between 18 June and 29 September.

The launch of flights to the two Greek islands brings the number of seasonal routes served by flydubai to six destinations, including Bodrum and Trabzon in Turkey, Batumi in Georgia and Tivat in Montenegro.

Speaking about the announcement, Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “We are excited to grow our network and give passengers more options to travel this summer. Demand for travel has started to increase as more countries gradually lift restrictions on international travel. The UAE has recently added Bahrain, Greece and Serbia to the safe travel list, which has encouraged more people to start planning their summer holidays. Mykonos and Santorini will be popular choices for travel from the UAE and GCC.”

There is currently a travel corridor between the UAE and Greece for fully vaccinated travellers. Under the agreement, passengers holding vaccination certificates issued by health authorities can travel to Greece without having to quarantine on arrival. The same rule applies for travellers flying from Greece to the UAE.

Emirates will codeshare on this route offering travellers more seamless connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub. Passengers are required to make sure they’re up to date with regulations from the IATA Travel Centre and the IATA destination tracker throughout their journey and follow the guidance issued by the authorities and the airline.
