Dubai-based airline Flydubai began operating direct flights from Dubai to Budapest and Warsaw on September 30, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

The Hungarian crew operating the first flight also included the captain's daughter Rebeka Cserné Fábián, chief flight attendant, and Réka Tóth, flight attendant.
