UAE budget carrier flydubai is expanding its network in Italy. The airline has announced it will launch flights to Pisa and resume operations to Catania from June 24.

It is the first carrier in the UAE to operate a direct flight from Dubai to Pisa and back. The carrier, which will also resume its operations to Catania in Sicily, currently operates flights to Naples.

The airline will operate a three-times-weekly (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) service to Pisa International Airport (PSA) and Catania International Airport. Emirates will codeshare on these routes and the flights will operate from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB).

Hamad Obaidalla, chief commercial officer at flydubai, 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.”

Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, said: “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.”

In other news, flydubai has confirmed that it will operate flights to select destinations from Dubai World Central due to the upcoming planned 45-day closure of the northern runway at DXB.
