When we began operations in 2009, our aim was to take more people to more places, more often. We now fly to more than 90 destinations, and we’re constantly adding new destinations to our network as we continue to grow. In 2018 alone, we carried 11 million passengers, making us the second largest carrier, by passenger numbers, operating out of Dubai International airport.

With the innovative vision and support of the Government of Dubai, we’ve opened up opportunities for travel, tourism and trade, and we’ve enhanced connectivity by increasing accessibility to and from Dubai.

“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.


Dubai is a key travel hub, a gateway to so many parts of the world and we pride ourselves in helping to make those connections, both far and near. We’re here to get people to where they want to go – whether it’s a speedy business trip, a far-flung adventure, or a trip home to spend time with family and friends.

From day one, flydubai has been committed to delivering a unique passenger experience and we’ve already differentiated ourselves through our existing product offering, which will continue to evolve as we focus on exceeding our passengers’ expectations.

Fuel efficient

The 737 MAX has been designed with efficiency in mind, so uses significantly less fuel per seat than the original Next-Generation 737.

Environmentally friendly

The 737 MAX is a friend to the environment through reduced carbon emissions, estimated to be as much as 50 percent below international limits for nitrogen oxides.

Noise reduction

The 737 MAX incorporates the latest quiet-engine technology, reducing the noise footprint of the aircraft when comparing it with the Next-Generation 737.


The way we travel has changed. So, we’ve redesigned our entire passenger journey and built upon the existing high standards of our operations to minimise the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

For everyone to realise the benefit of travel, our teams continue to work hard to take the correct and appropriate measures. We are also working with our passengers to highlight the role they play to protect themselves and other passengers. This relationship between the airline and the passenger defines the flydubai partnership. It is recognition that the way in which passengers travel has changed and that these protocols set out the new way of travelling.

In July 2017, Emirates and flydubai announced an extensive partnership which saw the two Dubai-based airlines join forces to offer customers unmatched travel options.

The partnership started with codeshare flights to just 29 cities and has since expanded to 84. It offers flydubai customers seamless connectivity to Emirates’ worldwide destinations spanning six continents, while Emirates customers enjoy access to flydubai’s regional network.

The innovative partnership goes beyond code-sharing and offers greater frequency and easier access to more global destinations with the advantage of connecting baggage to the final destination. To provide customers with an easy way to earn and redeem air miles, flydubai adopted Emirates Skywards as its loyalty programme in August 2018. The alignment of the programme allows Emirates Skywards members to earn Skywards Miles and Tier Miles and enjoy shared travel benefits when flying across the combined networks.

Together we will continue to unlock the benefits of the partnership for passengers who will have the opportunity to enjoy the unique advantages that each airline offers, as well as offering greater choice and flexibility when connecting via Dubai.
