flydubai, the Dubai-based airline, has announced today the launch of two new summer routes. The carrier will operate three weekly flights to Mykonos International Airport (JMK) and Santorini (Thira) Airport (JTR) between 18 June and 29 September.
The launch of flights to the two Greek islands brings the number of seasonal routes served by flydubai to six destinations including Bodrum and Trabzon in Turkey, Batumi in Georgia and Tivat in Montenegro.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer at flydubai, said: “we are excited to grow our network and give passengers more options to travel this summer. Demand for travel has started to increase as more countries gradually lift restrictions on international travel.
“The UAE has recently added Bahrain, Greece and Serbia to the safe travel list which has encouraged more people to start planning their summer holidays. Mykonos and Santorini will be popular choices for travel from the UAE and GCC.”
A safe travel corridor between the UAE and Greece has opened for fully vaccinated travellers to move between the two countries from 18 May 2021.
Commenting on the announcement, Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president, commercial operations and e-commerce at flydubai, said: “we are pleased to offer our passengers convenient travel options this summer to some of the most popular holiday spots.
“Whether flying in Business or Economy Class or opting to purchase a flexible holiday package that includes flights, hotels stay and other add ons, flydubai is committed to making travel this summer more flexible and a little less stressful.’’
