flydubai enhances Business Class experience with the new Business Boarding Gate

The new dedicated gate brings additional convenience for Business travellers

Dubai-based flydubai has announced the launch of its Business Boarding Gate at Terminal 2, Dubai International.

This latest service will ensure a more comfortable and quicker transition for Business Class passengers from check-in to boarding. Combined with priority check-in, a shorter time through security on departure and access to the Business Lounge, the Business Boarding Gate provides a more convenient passenger experience. 

Light snacks and beverages will be available at the Business Boarding Gate, as well as access to complimentary wireless broadband internet. Leading Arabic and English daily newspapers are available at the gate. Once the flight is ready to depart, a dedicated bus service will transport passengers to the aircraft, promising a maximum wait time of up to 10 minutes at the Business Boarding Gate.

flydubai launched its Business Class offering in 2013, in order to provide customers with greater choice and a more flexible and efficient travel experience. From its latest on board survey of 200,000 passengers, flydubai has discovered a new generation of business class traveller with 43% of Business Class passengers under the age of 34 and 27% aged between 35 and 44 years old. This group tend to be younger, travel frequently and give priority to convenience and good value. The research also revealed an increase in intra-Arab traffic with more same-day passengers travelling within the GCC for business meetings or leisure.

Last year flydubai opened its Business Lounge in Terminal 2, Dubai international. The lounge occupies two levels and offers its Business Class passengers comfortable seating in a contemporary environment.
