Flydubai to suspend its operations with effect from March 26

Posted 23 March 2020 · Add Comment

Following the announcement from the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) and the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) flydubai will suspend its operations with effect from Thursday 26 March 2020 at 23:59 (UAE Time) until Thursday 09 April 2020 at 23:59 (UAE Time) as part of the precautionary measures being implemented in response to COVID-19.

 

The NCEMA contingency plan, benchmarking of industry best-practice and international guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHP) and Dubai Health Authority (DHA) provided the framework for flydubai’s own response plans to COVID-19.  A number of working groups have been set up across the airline to support its operations for both its passengers and employees.

 

Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer of flydubai, said: “clearly this is an unprecedented situation for the aviation industry, and indeed the world, but flydubai is as prepared as it can be. Our operational focus may be changing in the short term but the work continues. We have reallocated internal resources to critical business needs, including the highest levels of customer support and care of our fleet, which has seen the activation of a large-scale maintenance and care programme to ensure that all our grounded aircraft are attended to at the highest international standards. We are seeing this period as an opportunity to recalibrate our business and our unrelenting focus is now on laying the groundwork, together, for a smooth full return to service in due course.”
