UAEís value-carrier Flydubai has cut its Boeing 737 Max orders to reflect its post-covid business plan.

The airline – part of the Emirates Group – has reduced its order for the Max by 65. It had ordered a whopping 251 of the fuel-efficient type and has already received 16. The adjustment has been agreed by Boeing.

In a statement Flydubai said the reduction followed "a review of ... fleet plans in line with the airline’s strategy of rebuilding the travel sector following the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing dynamics of the airline's route structure."

The airline currently flies 13 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 3 of the larger Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft, the Flydubai statement said.
