Bid for an upgrade with flydubai

flydubai launches new upgrade option for Business Class

Dubai-based flydubai has announced a new service that offers passengers the opportunity to bid for an upgrade to Business Class before their next flight.

Economy Class passengers travelling on eligible flights will be notified by flydubai via email when the bidding period has begun. Once a bid is accepted, the passenger will be charged for the bid amount that was submitted for the upgrade and they will receive an updated booking confirmation. If an upgrade is not possible, passengers will not be charged, and they can continue their journey according to their original itinerary.

Commenting on the announcement, Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai said: “flydubai is committed to investing in technology that enhances the passenger experience. By providing more options for flight upgrades we look forward to giving passengers additional choice and flexibility when flying with us and a unique opportunity to experience our Business Class product.”

Passengers travelling in Business Class can enjoy a range of benefits to enhance their travel experience. The journey starts at the airport with a dedicated check-in counter and priority services during security checks and baggage collection at selected airports. Passengers will also have access to flydubai’s Business Class Lounge at Terminal 2 or Emirates Business Class Lounge at Terminal 3 at Dubai International. Comfortable Italian leather seats await passengers on board, with wider seats and extra legroom. Passengers will also be able to work on a fold-out table with a dedicated power outlet or choose from a content rich inflight entertainment system with the latest films and TV shows on a 12.1-inch touchscreen.
