Flydubai is to begin new services to Bratislava, Prague and Sofia in December.

The low-cost carrier will operate twice-weekly services from Dubai to Bratislava. Czech capital Prague, meanwhile, will be served four times weekly, and the Bulgarian capital twice weekly.

State-owned Flydubai says the addition of the new routes underlines its commitment to "expanding into new markets in central and eastern Europe".

Flightglobal's Innovata schedules show that Flydubai's service to Bratislava will be the only scheduled link between Slovakia and the UAE. Wizz Air offers competition between Dubai and Sofia. Flights between Prague and the Gulf city are operated by Emirates and Czech low-cost carrier Smartwings.
