Flydubai makes a landing in Olbia

Flydubai, the Dubai-based airline, inaugurated service to Olbia today, becoming the first UAE carrier to operate direct flights between Dubai and Olbia. This commences the airline’s seasonal three-times-weekly service to Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport (OLB), expanding its network in Italy to five destinations, including Catania, Milan-Bergamo, Naples, and Pisa.

Officials at Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport (OLB) greeted the inaugural flight with a water cannon salute and a cordial welcome.

The Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, Ghaith Al Ghaith, stated, “We are committed to opening underserved destinations, and we are thrilled to offer our consumers more summer travel options with the launch of flights to Olbia, Sardinia. Since 2018, when flydubai began operations to the region, Italy has been a popular destination for UAE and GCC customers, and we look forward to offering more travel options as flydubai enters another record-breaking summer.”

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Chief Executive Officer of Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport, Silvio Pippobello, as well as the tourism board in Sardinia and other key stakeholders for their support. I look forward to enhancing connectivity between the UAE and Italy,” Al Ghaith concluded. ​

Silvio Pippobello, Chief Executive Officer of Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport, stated: “Thanks to flydubai’s extensive network, today’s inaugurated connection significantly improves the island’s connectivity for the benefit of the region and the local population, while also providing a crucial opportunity for our tourist destination to officially enter the global market. Today, in fact, it is possible to reach Sardinia with a single halt from every corner of the globe. We applaud the airline for believing in our destination, the region of Sardinia for its support, the Sardinian airports that have collaborated to reach this milestone, and all the stakeholders who are working to ensure the success of this flight.”

Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, commented on the launch of flights: “With the launch of flights to our fifth destination in Italy, we look forward to providing more convenient and dependable options for passengers travelling between Dubai and Olbia.
