Flydubai expands Europe network to Slovenia and Hungary

The carrier will launch flights to Ljubljana and Budapest in September

Dubai-based Flydubai has announced plans to start flights to Budapest and Ljubljana. The carrier will operate three weekly flights to Ljubljana from 24 September and four weekly flights to Budapest from 30 September.

Commenting on the announcement, Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “As demand for travel continues to increase, Budapest and Ljubljana are welcome additions to our growing network. With more countries lifting restrictions on international travel, we look forward to providing passengers with more options for travel this year following the launch of our wide range of summer destinations.”

With international travel restrictions gradually easing, Flydubai has grown its network to more than 80 destinations, including several seasonal summer routes such as Bodrum and Trabzon in Turkey; Batumi in Georgia; Mykonos and Santorini in Greece; Tivat in Montenegro, and Naples in Italy.

Flydubai senior vice president of Commercial Operations and E-commerce Jeyhun Efendi said: “We are pleased to see our network in Europe grow further with the start of operations to Budapest and Ljubljana. These destinations have much to offer and give travellers the chance to explore new places that will help stimulate flows of travel and tourism, particularly after a time when our customers haven’t been able to travel as much as they would have liked. Passengers travelling from these destinations will also have the opportunity to explore Dubai and beyond on our network.”

Emirates will codeshare on flights to Budapest and Ljubljana offering travellers more seamless connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub to 168 destinations between both the Emirates and Flydubai networks including Australia, China, the Indian Ocean, Japan, South Asia and the US. 

Passengers are required to make sure that they are up to date with the regulations from the IATA Travel Centre and the IATA destination tracker for their whole journey and follow guidance issued by authorities and the airline.
