Dubai low-cost airline Flydubai has launched four new services to expand its European network to 43 destinations in 21 countries.

The carrier will be the first UAE airline to operate direct flights to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, starting August 2. 

Flydubai is also marking its first entry into the Baltic region with direct flights to Riga International Airport in Latvia starting from October 11, as well as Tallinn Airport in Estonia and Vilnius International Airport in Lithuania a day later.

“We have created a diverse network of 126 destinations, 60 percent of which previously had very limited or no connections to Dubai,” said CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith.

Flydubai will operate its latest aircraft with lie-flat seats on these routes from Terminal 3, Dubai International (DXB) and will also codeshare with Emirates.

In November the carrier announced the biggest change in its 15-year existence, with an order for 30 wide-body Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

The airline is best known for its fleet of narrow-body Boeing 737s, which serve destinations across Europe, Africa and Asia.

Flydubai took delivery of seven new aircraft in 2023, growing its fleet of Boeing 737s to 79, an increase of 23 percent year-on-year.
