Flydubai grows European network with new Salzburg flight

The airline has launched flights to the Austrian city and resumed its Naples service

Low cost carrier Flydubai will start its service to Salzburg International Airport from 15 July. Flights to the Austrian city will depart Dubai International Airport four times a week.

The airline has also announced the resumption of flights to Naples in Italy from 31 July. Flights to Naples will be operated within the quarantine-free travel corridor that has recently been established between Italy and the UAE, enabling passengers to travel between the two countries with fewer restrictions.

Passengers will be required to present a negative Covid-19 test result at check-in taken no more than 48 hours before departure from the UAE. On arrival in Italy, all passengers over the age of two years will be required to take a rapid antigen test.

Commenting on the airline’s expanding European network,  Flydubai chief commercial officer Hamad Obaidalla said: “We are excited to connect Salzburg to the UAE with direct airlinks for the first time which will also offer passengers from the neighbouring region a more comfortable and convenient travel option.

“We continue to grow our operations in Europe and with the resumption of flights to Naples Flydubai is able to offer greater choice this summer. We are seeing steady growth in passenger traffic as more countries ease travel restrictions. We will continue to grow our network in the months ahead.”
