Throughout the year, our customers from Italy will be able to take advantage of our easy and direct flights to Dubai.”
Passengers will be required to keep up to date with rules from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Centre and the IATA destination tracker throughout the duration of their flight, as well as follow any instructions offered by the authorities and the airline.

Obaidalla went on to say,
“As more nations loosen travel restrictions and demand for travel returns to pre-pandemic levels, we have witnessed a solid increase in passenger numbers in recent years. In addition to adding new destinations to our network and increasing the number of flights on certain of our current routes, we are looking forward to an outstanding summer this year.”
