Flydubai expands Italian network on aircraft with business class flatbeds

The airline will launch flights to Pisa and resume operations to Sicily in June

This June, Flydubai will be the first UAE carrier to operate flights from Dubai to the Italian city of Pisa and will also resume its operations to Catania in Sicily bringing its network in Italy to a total of three destinations, including Naples.

Flights to Pisa International Airport are due to start on 24 June 2022, operating three times a week on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Emirates will codeshare on the route and flights will operate from Terminal 3 at Dubai International.

Commenting on the new route, Flydubai chief commercial officer Hamad Obaidalla said: “We look forward to the launch of flights to our third point in Italy this summer. Pisa will be a popular destination for travellers from the UAE and the GCC to discover the beauty of the Tuscany region.

“We have seen healthy growth in passenger numbers as more countries ease travel restrictions and demand for travel returns to pre-pandemic levels. We look forward to an exceptional summer as we continue to add more destinations to our network and increase the frequency of flights on some of our existing routes.”


Flydubai senior vice president of Commercial Operations and E-commerce, Jeyhun Efendi added: “Flydubai’s new three-times weekly service to Pisa, as well as our operations to Catania and Naples, offers passengers from the UAE and the region more options for travel to Europe this summer.

“Our passengers from Italy will be able to enjoy convenient and direct flights to Dubai throughout the year. Our flights will be operated by our fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft which feature a flatbed in Business Class and additional comfort in Economy Class.”

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.
