On Monday (July 12, 2021), flydubai announced an expansion of their European network with new service to Salzburg, Austria starting July 15th and resumed flights to Naples from July 31, 2021. Flights to both Salzburg and Naples will be offered four times weekly. Naples flights will be operated within the recently established quarantine-free travel corridor between the UAE and Italy. Customers must provide a negative COVID-19 test result at check-in taken no longer than 48 hours prior to departure and upon arrival in Italy, all travelers over the age of two will be required to take a rapid antigen test.

In Monday’s announcement, flydubai’s 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.”
