flydubai today launched its first flights from Al Maktoum International-Dubai World Central (DWC).
The start of flydubai’s new operations from DWC will help to deliver flydubai’s planned growth as it takes delivery of more than 100 new Boeing aircraft over the next eight years to support the growing demand for travel to and from Dubai.
Speaking about flydubai’s new operations, Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer, said:
“It is the same spirit that allowed us to develop significant potential for growth in the many markets within our geographic focus and now enables us to take advantage of the huge opportunity presented by DWC. We recognise the benefits and convenience that DWC offers, whilst at the same time continuing our operations at the world renowned Dubai International. We are a young, dynamic airline and keen to increase opportunities for travel for our passengers across Dubai; DWC gives us that.”
As well as increasing capacity, the addition of DWC as flydubai’s second home will mean an increase in choice for passengers. DWC offers a more convenient airport for a large number of customers living in the south of Dubai and as communities and infrastructure develop around the airport.
With more aircraft arriving every year, flydubai has ambitious plans and the extra capacity provided by DWC will help the airline continue its growth from an airport that is destined to become a leading centre of world aviation and the future of aviation in Dubai.
