flydubai has announced that it will begin flights to Bratislava in Slovakia, Prague in the Czech Republic and Sofia in Bulgaria later this year.
With flights due to commence in December, the airline said it is continuing its expansion into Central and Eastern Europe following the announcement of flights to Sarajevo and Zagreb earlier this year.
Commenting on the new routes, Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said: “We are delighted to have Bratislava, Prague and Sofia join our network. The addition of these three capital cities signifies our commitment towards serving the region and we look forward to providing passengers with a variety of options to connect to Dubai and beyond.”
The addition of the new routes will see flydubai become the first UAE airline to operate from Bratislava and Sofia.
flydubai has launched 23 new routes this year and now operates to 11 destinations in Central and Eastern Europe.
“We are always looking for new opportunities to grow our network,” said Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president commercial (UAE, EU, ME, CIS) for flydubai.
“Central and Eastern Europe has always been an important market for us and we are glad that we are able to offer passengers from Bratislava, Prague and Sofia more possibilities to travel to Dubai. In addition, Business Class will be available on all three routes, offering passengers a premium travel experience.”
