Emirates: flydubai becoming a 'medium to full service airline'

Emirates president Sir Tim Clark, speaking at the IATA AGM and World Air Transport Summit, stated (04-Jun-2018) flydubai is "becoming a medium to full service airline" as it becomes a more integral part of the Emirates group. Sir Tim noted flydubai is now in a position to do a lot of the intra-regional work that Emirates, with its all widebody aircraft fleet, cannot manage effectively. The combined fleet of Emirates and flydubai is around 330 aircraft said Sir Tim. According to the CAPA Fleet Database, flydubai operates 55 Boeing 737-800s, six 737 MAX 8s and has another 245 737 MAX 8s on order.
