Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer of Flydubai, said: “We are delighted to hear this announcement by the government authorities, however we must take a moment to thank the UAE authorities for their strong leadership and continuous guidance during these unprecedented times. The steps that were taken across the UAE will enable us to return to service in a safe and measured way. Dubai, as an established centre for international aviation has always operated to the highest international standards and the combined efforts across the industry over the last few months will allow our passengers to travel once again in a safe environment. We look forward to welcoming our passengers back on board.”
