This includes the start of flights to Cagliari, Corfu, Krabi, Milan and Pattaya from 2023 as well as the resumption of flights to Hofuf from November 24, 2022 and flights are available for booking on flydubai.com.“I am very proud to see our network grow bigger than ever. Dubai’s aviation industry has made a swift recovery, and our agility combined with our strong business model has enabled us to grow our operations and to achieve this significant milestone. With 113 destinations now available to book, we look forward to offering our passengers more options for travel across our ever-growing network,” said Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer at flydubai, commenting on the expansion of the airline’s network.
“We are excited to expand our network in Europe with the launch of year-round flights to Milan in Italy and seasonal summer flights to Corfu in Greece and Cagliari in Italy. We are pleased to see our network in Europe grow and to serve five destinations in Italy. Over the years, we have continued to see increased demand to and from the region and we look forward to providing our passengers with exceptional travel experiences,” said Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, talking about the launch of flights.
“We are delighted to offer our passengers more options for travel with our new flights to Krabi and Pattaya.

The addition of these six routes will see the flydubai network expand to 114 destinations in 54 countries. This represents a significant milestone for the airline as it is the largest number of destinations it has served since it began operations.
In addition, the airline will resume flights to Hofuf in Saudi Arabia from 24 November 2022 with a two-times weekly service.
