Flights to Krakow will start in April 2018 and will further grow the carrier’s Eastern and Central European network, which includes Belgrade, Bratislava, Bucharest, Prague, Skopje, Sarajevo and Sofia. flydubai’s European network includes 24 destinations. Krakow is known for its scenic old town, featuring the city’s well preserved medieval core where visitors can enjoy a walk around the remains of the city walls or Poland’s largest city park: Planty.

flydubai further diversifies its network by opening up direct air links to Italy. Flights to Catania will start in June 2018 and mark the first time the Dubai-based carrier operates flights to the South of Europe. Catania is located on Italy’s most popular island, Sicily, and offers travellers from Dubai and the GCC a great variety of activities including exploring Catania’s historic sites or a hike up to the summit of Mount Etna, Italy’s well-known volcano.
