Flydubai: 4 New Boeing Aircraft
Flydubai, Dubai's first low cost airline, expanded its fleet to a total of 13 aircraft by taking delivery of 4 new Boeing 737-800 NG's in recent weeks.
'We are thrilled to welcome these 4 new aircraft into our fleet. These new additions show flydubai's continued growth, with 13 planes now servicing 28 routes in just 18 months,' stated flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith.
'Our 4 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 4 new aircraft additions come complete with flydubai's 'Fiber To The Screen' (FTTS In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system from Lumexis. This fiber optic based system, available as an optional extra, 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.
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, 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.
