Flydubai’s efforts to enhance passenger experience also include growing its fleet. Since the start of 2023, the airline has added seven new aircraft to its fleet, increasing the total number of Boeing 737s to 79. This represents a significant 23% growth compared to the previous year, ensuring increased capacity and flexibility in serving passengers.
With an average of 9,400 flights per month scheduled between June and September, Flydubai is well-equipped to handle the summer travel season’s demands. August, in particular, is expected to be the busiest month with a high number of flights.
