‘Expansion of flydubai’s European Network with New Direct Flights to Basel, Riga, Tallinn, and Vilnius’

by Dubaiforum

flydubai, the Dubai-based carrier, is set to expand its network in Europe with the launch of flights to four new destinations including Basel, Riga, Tallinn, and Vilnius. This move makes flydubai the first national carrier to operate direct flights from Dubai to these cities.

Earlier this year, the airline announced the launch of the four services which will begin operating later this year from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB). Flights to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg (BSL) will start from 2nd August, marking the carrier’s first point in Switzerland. Additionally, flydubai will enter the Baltic region with direct flights to Riga International Airport (RIX) in Latvia from 11th October, as well as Tallinn Airport (TLL) in Estonia and Vilnius International Airport (VNO) in Lithuania from 12th October.

Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, and E-commerce at flydubai, expressed excitement about the new routes, stating, “over the years, we have remained dedicated to opening up underserved destinations, and we are pleased to reaffirm this with the addition of Basel, Riga, Tallinn, and Vilnius. We have already seen strong demand ahead of the route launches and we are confident that our new services will offer more people a convenient and reliable travel experience through Dubai’s aviation hub.”

Monica Linder Guarnaccia, Chief Marketing Officer at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, also welcomed flydubai’s expansion, saying, “Dubai is the perfect addition to our destination portfolio. Thanks to flydubai, the Metropolitan Region of Basel is connected to a city of significant economic importance. And, thanks to the codeshare with Emirates, Dubai is also a gateway to countless other metropolises. We look very forward to welcoming flydubai at the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg.”

With a network of 129 destinations in 58 countries and a fleet of 86 Boeing 737 aircraft, flydubai continues to establish itself as a key player in the aviation industry. The airline’s commitment to expanding its route network and providing convenient travel options is evident through these new additions to its roster.
