On the third anniversary of Dubai’s first low cost airline, flydubai, its 16th aircraft was delivered carrying the registration A6-FDP. The Boeing 737-800NG will help the airline further expand its network of 33 routes across the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe.
The aircraft is flydubai’s seventh aircraft to be fitted with Boeing’s new Sky Interior and the Fibre-To-The-Screen in-flight entertainment system by Lumexis.
“Less than two years after operations began, we have a fleet of 16 aircraft, a growing network ….The numbers alone speak volumes about flydubai’s rising prominence …..”, said CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith.
In South Asia flydubai flies to Lucknow, India and Kathmandu (Nepal). The carrier has been asking for more frequencies and destinations to India which it hasn’t been granted as yet, Aerospace Diary learns.
Flydubai’s all fares are one way and inclusive of taxes, one piece of hand baggage weighing up to 7kg and a small handbag or laptop bag is allowed. Customers pay for optional extras such as checked baggage, which starts at AED50 for 20kgs, or a seat with extra legroom for AED100.
