Flydubai has revealed its opening service to Naples (NAP) and has become the first national carrier for the UAE to offer straight flights from Dubai. With up to five flights a week, Naples turns out to be the airline’s second destination in Italy after it launched flights to Sicily’s Catania last year.
Mentioning on the occasion, Jeyhun Efendi, senior vice president, commercial operations and e-commerce at flydubai stated: “Naples is the second destination we have launched in Italy in this year. It is one more example of flydubai’s decade-long commitment in the direction of opening up new markets and giving those in Italy more chances to benefit from direct flights to Dubai and beyond on our network.”
Emirates will codeshare on this way and for reservations under the codeshare, Emirates travellers will get free meals and the Emirates checked luggage allowance on flights functioned by flydubai in business and economy class.
“Through our codeshare corporation, Emirates’ clienteles from across our global network, mainly from key inbound markets such as Australia, Japan and China, will now also be able to simply access Naples, while local travellers in the Naples region can link to famous destinations such as Thailand, Australia, Egypt and China,” stated Thierry Aucoc, senior vice president of commercial operations, for Europe, Russian Federation and Latin America at Emirates.
Roberto Barbieri, CEO of Naples Airport stated: “With flydubai flights to Dubai, we are providing a door to the UAE and to the East, along with chances to explore to destinations such as Australia and Thailand, which were previously not accessible.”
