The carrier has been supporting government requests with repatriation flights and enabling the movement of essential goods across its network and beyond.  The carrier has enabled 23,000 passengers to return home and Flydubai’s all-cargo flights were also in operation, ensuring that essential items continued to flow with goods brought to Dubai and onwards. Between April and the beginning of June, Flydubai transported 3,704,991kg on 657 flights to 35 destinations.

 

During these last few months the airline has reengineered the entire passenger journey following best practice from IATA, WHO and GCAA built upon its existing standards.

 

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.”
