flydubai Now Operating 13 Aircrafts

flydubai, Dubai's first low cost airline, proved that 13 was a lucky number for the airline, as it expanded its fleet to a total of 13 aircraft by taking delivery of a quartet of new Boeing 737-800 NG's in a number of weeks.

flydubai CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: "We are thrilled to welcome these four new aircraft into our fleet. These new additions show flydubai's continued growth, with 13 planes now servicing 28 routes in just 18 months. These numbers show phenomenal growth and we show no sign of slowing down, with ambitious growth plans that see us expanding still over the coming months.

"Our four new aircraft are at the cutting edge of air travel and we are certain our customers will enjoy the added comforts that these new planes have to offer."

The four new aircraft additions come complete with flydubai's revolutionary 'Fiber To The Screen' (FTTS™) In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system from Lumexis. This fibre optic based system is lighter and thinner than previous models, enabling it to fit comfortably into the airline's special Recaro seats. This reduction in weight allows flydubai to offer their customers the best in-flight entertainment on the market, while significantly reducing the associated costs, meaning flydubai can keep its ticket prices low.

In line with flydubai's culture of only charging travellers for the services they use, the new IFE will be available as an optional extra in the way that baggage and meals are. Passengers travelling on these new flydubai aircraft, will have the ability to choose what they want to watch depending on their preference and how much they want to spend.

In addition to state-of-the-art entertainment system, the new planes are also among the first to be fitted with the new Boeing Sky Interior. The spacious new interior aims to improve passenger comfort onboard the new flydubai planes, and has subtle mood lighting to simulate night time, day time and sunrise/sunset, as well as redesigned overhead bins to give more cabin space and increased storage.
