New spots in Greece and Jordan will be added to flydubai’s network this summer.
Although we’re enjoying mild temperatures in the UAE right now, we’re already getting an action plan in place for beating the summer’s heat.
And, thanks to flydubai’s latest news, we’ll have a couple more holiday options to mull over in a few months.
The Dubai-based airline has announced it will add new cities in Greece and Jordan to its network from June, bringing its total number of destinations on offer to 102 (spread across 46 countries).
Flydubai will start thrice-weekly flights to Thessaloniki from June 15, and four weekly flights to Aqaba from June 16, becoming the UAE’s first airline to fly to both destinations.
The former is the second-largest city in Greece, home more than 1 million residents as well as a bustling annual calendar of festivals and events.
The port city, considered to be Greece’s cultural capital, can be reached via a five-and-a-half-hour flight and also boasts many UNESCO’s World Heritage sites.
Aqaba, also a coastal city, is Jordan’s major seaport—but it’s also got plenty of R&R options for tourists.
“We are looking forward to the start of flydubai’s flights to Aqaba and Thessaloniki. Both cities are major economic, industrial, commercial centres and very popular leisure destinations especially in the summer,” said Jeyhun Efendi, flydubai’s senior vice-president commercial.
These aren’t the only new routes the affordable airline is launching this year either—Tivat, Krakow, Dubrovnik, Catania, Kutaisi, Qabala and Batumi will be added to flydubai’s network from March.
Looks like we’ll be using up all our annual leave this year…
