Adding another route to its ever-growing destination portfolio, flydubai has officially launched five-times-weekly services to Naples.
Naples represents the UAE carrier’s second gateway in Italy, joining its Sicily route. The destination offers visitors a plethora of cultural attractions, delicious cuisine and the stunning Amalfi coastline.
Senior vice president, commercial operations and e-commerce, flydubai, Jeyhun Efendi, enthused on the new service: “We are delighted to be flying to Naples, the second destination we have launched in Italy in a year. It is another example of flydubai’s decade long commitment towards opening up underserved markets and giving those in Italy more opportunities to benefit from direct flights to Dubai and beyond on our network. We look forward to the increased opportunities for trade and tourism that this new route will bring.”
Also commenting was CEO, Naples Airport, Roberto Barbieri: “With flydubai flights to Dubai we are providing a door to the UAE and to the East, along with opportunities to travel to destinations such as Australia and Thailand, which were previously not reachable until last week and are now just a one stop away.”
Barbieri continued: “All flydubai flights are codeshared with Emirates and from Dubai’s aviation hub it will be possible to continue onwards to numerous destinations around the world. Along with the recent opening of connections with North America, the Campania region is connected to the East, facilitating both trade and travel to exotic places. Incoming tourist flows from Asia and Australia will be easier and we expect the local tourism economy to benefit and grow.”
