About us

Our story

flydubai began operations in 2009 with the aim of taking more people to more places, more often. In just a few years, flydubai has firmly established its place in the region. Today, we fly to more than 90 destinations operating out of Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International (DWC). We’re opening up opportunities for travel, tourism and trade across the region. By opening up new markets, we’re changing the way people look at travel while contributing to the growth of Dubai as an aviation hub.


“The vision and commitment of the Government has transformed Dubai into a global centre for aviation, trade and tourism. Launched to support Dubai’s thriving commercial and tourism sectors, flydubai’s ambition and success embody the spirit of the city it represents. In its short history, flydubai has firmly established its place in the region. It has opened up new markets, contributed to increased tourism in Dubai and made a major contribution to the growth and connectivity of Dubai’s aviation hub.” His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of flydubai

Our fleet

We have one of the youngest and most efficient fleets in the sky today. Our aircraft are fuel efficient, quiet and reliable. This enables us to get you to where you want to be in the most convenient way possible. We’re continuously growing our fleet of Boeing aircraft to expand our network and increase frequencies.

At the Dubai Airshow in 2013 and again in 2017 we placed the largest orders for single aisle aircraft in the Middle East.

We were the first airline in the region to take delivery of the brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft which joined our fleet in 2017. The aircraft is friendlier to the environment, uses less fuel and lowers emissions, creates quieter, more peaceful surroundings for airports, reducing the noise footprint of the aircraft when comparing it with the Next-Generation Boeing 737.

Our people

Our friendly and well-trained international crew have amazing energy and passion for making all our flights as enjoyable as possible. We have a work force of more than 3,000 employees from 111 nationalities committed to serving you always.

Our network

Connecting and reconnecting with people and places. It’s important to us all. Whether it’s a trip home to see the family, a culture-filled weekend or a business trip to a new market, our diverse network can get you there. We have the potential to connect Dubai to a population of over two and a half billion people, creating opportunities for our passengers to enjoy new connections in trade, tourism and travel.

We’re opening up the world; go explore it.

flydubai has rapidly developed an international network covering the Middle East, GCC, Africa, Caucasus, Central Asia, Europe and the Indian Subcontinent.
