Dubai-based airline flydubai is launching two new seasonal flights that will operate three times per week from the Emirati city to the Greek islands of Mykonos and Santorini.
The budget airline said the summer 2021 routes would begin on June 18 and continue until September 29.
Both flights depart from Dubai International Terminal 3 on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays directly to Mykonos. The return flight from Mykonos will be via Santorini, meaning flights to Santorini will have a short stop at Mykonos first.
Tickets start from $680 USD (AED 2,500) for a return flight to either destination while business class tickets start from $2,178 USD (AED 8,000).
The flights will be part of an agreement with Emirates to make Mykonos and Santorini accessible to more travelers.
A travel corridor between Greece and the UAE opened in May and since May 18 vaccinated passengers traveling with a health passport do not have to quarantine in Greece upon arrival. The agreement is reciprocal for people traveling from Greece to the UAE.
