UAE government-owned budget airline flydubai announced in a statement on Wednesday the resumption of flights from Dubai to Naples, Italy. Flights between flydubai’s home airport of Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Naples International Airport (NAP) will commence on July 1 after establishing a UAE to Italy quarantine-free travel corridor.
The UAE government has praised Italy’s decision to waive the 10-day quarantine period in favor of test-based travel protocols for passengers arriving on flights that originated in the UAE. Starting June 2, all passengers on flights from the UAE to Rome/Fiumicino, Milan/Malpensa, Venice/Marco Polo, and Naples International Airport will be allowed to travel freely around Italy providing they can show proof of a negative PCR test taken no more than 48 hours before departure.
No need to self-isolate
When arriving in Italy, all passengers over the age of two will be required to take a rapid antigen test. Costing much less than a COVID-19 Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, a rapid antigen test provides a negative or positive result in minutes.
When speaking about the resumption of Naples flights in a company statement, flydubai Chief Commercial Officer Hamad Obaidalla said:
“We are pleased to see more countries opening up for safe tourism, and it is a step in the right direction to speed up recovery and boost travel this summer. This is a good sign that confidence in travel is returning, and the efforts taken by stakeholders in the tourism industry to safeguard every step of the journey will benefit our passengers. We look forward to restarting our flights to Naples, a much-anticipated destination on the flydubai network.”
