flydubai is showcasing its brand new Boeing 737
MAX 8 at the Dubai Airshow.
The aircraft, bearing the UAE registration mark
A6-MAX, is the
first of 76 aircraft on order from Boeing, all of
which are scheduled to be delivered by 2023. Six of these aircraft
will join the flydubai fleet by the end of 2017. The 737 MAX is
powered by CFM International LEAP-1B engines.
flydubai’s Chairman, His Highness Sheikh Ahmed
bin Saeed Al Maktoum, said, “At the 2013
Dubai Airshow we made history by placing the largest order for
this aircraft type in the Middle East. This was made before this
aircraft took its first commercial flight. To see that commitment
being fulfilled today is another milestone in Dubai’s aviation
success story. The efficiency and enhanced performance this
aircraft promises is going to play an important role in the new
chapter of flydubai’s growth strategy.”
flydubai’s new Boeing 737 MAX 8s will initially
be deployed on the furthest points on its network.
Destinations including Bangkok, Prague, Yekaterinburg and Zanzibar
will be among the first to be served by the MAX 8.
aircraft being delivered over the next few years will be rolled
out across the fleet and will become available on most of the
routes on the network.
"The 737 MAX family is the fastest-selling
airplane in Boeing history with about 3,950 orders from 93
customers worldwide,” said Marty Bentrott, vice president, Sales
for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Middle East, Turkey, Russia,
Central Asia and Africa. “It is tremendous to see flydubai’s MAX
at the Dubai Airshow bearing the A6-MAX registration which is a
very special accolade to our valued partnership with flydubai and
to the MAX airplane.”
Since the beginning of 2017, flydubai has
launched six new destinations and grown its network to more than
95 destinations, increased the schedule to more than 1,700 flights
per week as well as rolled out its new uniform worn by more than
2,500 uniformed staff.
