Chief Executive Officer, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “We are teaming up with JPA, as one of the world’s leading design specialists, to deliver a new cabin interior reflective of the airline’s maturity, offering our more than 10 million annual passengers a more comfortable onboard experience across our growing network.”

John Tighe, JPA's design director leading the Flydubai design project said; "To seek inspiration that will help inform the final cabin design, JPA has already spent a good deal of time immersing into the culture, colour and sights of Dubai. We've compared flight experiences on airlines in the region and have been getting to know the Flydubai family of crew, engineers and management team.  They are a warm, friendly, smart and ambitious airline, have a clear vision of where they wish to go and value their customers highly. And we both share in the commitment to constantly innovative and strive for best in class solutions."
