flydubai announced (17-Nov-2013) a commitment for an order of up to 100 Boeing 737 MAX 8s and up to 11 737-800s, valued at USD11.4 billion at list prices. The order is the largest commitment for Boeing single-aisle aircraft in the Middle East. The 737-800s will be delivered between 2016 and 2017 and 737 MAX deliveries will take place between 2H2017 and the end of 2023. flydubai chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said, "Today’s commitment for an order for up to 111 aircraft from Boeing signifies the strength of flydubai’s business model and the still untapped opportunity to connect previously underserved markets to Dubai. flydubai will continue to contribute to the growth of trade and tourism in the UAE, an internationally established centre for aviation."
