Flydubai gets its first Boeing 737-800

Flydubai, Dubai’s first low cost carrier, today received the first of 50 Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft it had ordered. The airline is scheduled to commence flights on June 1.

‘For many years the Government of Dubai has recognised the need for a low cost carrier to serve our country,’ said Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of flydubai.

‘When we placed our historic order for 50 737-800 NG aircraft from Boeing at Farnborough last year, we said that we would receive the first aircraft in May 2009 and begin flights soon after. Today we are delivering on that promise with the unveiling of our first aircraft, following close on the heels of the announcement of our first flight, which will be on June 1.

‘ The unveiling ceremony revealed the aircraft to a crowd of industry experts, staff and media and gave the first real glimpse of the airline’s striking livery. The bright tones of blue and orange, personally selected by Sheikh Mohammed, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, were chosen to reflect the colours and the coastline of Dubai.

The orange reflects the sun, sand and the warmth of the people of Dubai, while the blue reflects the endless blue skies and the sparkling blue seas that Dubai is famous for.

Already, flydubai has announced four destinations, Beirut, Amman, Damascus and Alexandria.

flydubai will operate from an enhanced and modernised Terminal 2 on the north side of Dubai International Airport.
