The vision and leadership of our country has been key to the UAE’s growth and flydubai remains committed to contributing to its success.”

The airline by the end of the year will have a fleet of 61 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. In addition, there is a pipeline of 70 aircraft due for delivery by 2023.
