The flydubai Story: 10 Years of Making Remarkable Things Happen

 

As part of the month-long celebrations for flydubai’s 10th Anniversary the flydubai team came together at Reel Cinemas in Dubai Mall for a preview of the story of how flydubai changed the way people travel around the region.

At the event, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer of flydubai, said: “Over the last 10 years, we have carried more than 70 million passengers, introduced new and under-explored destinations and brought people closer to share experiences and opportunities.  We remain as determined as we have always been to bridge the distance between people and in doing so enrich their lives.”

 The airline shared the flydubai Story with its employees first recognising the contribution they have made to the success of the airline.

 Reflecting on the remarkable journey over the last 10 years, Ghaith Al Ghaith, continued: “We began operations as a low-cost carrier to allow more people to travel to more places more often however our real aim was to improve accessible air travel for over 2.5 billion people within the flydubai network. This has seen the airline evolve, introducing Business Class and refining our product offering without compromising our operational integrity. Today, we offer our customers value beyond the fare, ensuring opportunities are within reach of everyone, everywhere we fly.”

Having shared the flydubai Story with colleagues, flydubai is today sharing it with those who have been brought together by choosing to flydubai over the last 10 years:

Ghaith Al Ghaith, outlining the formula for the airline’s achievements, said: “at flydubai we put our customers at the heart of everything we do.  Our commitment remains to open new and underserved destinations to ensure our network complements and enhances Dubai as a hub for aviation.  We will continue to innovate to improve efficiency and enhance customer experience.”
