flydubai (FZ) will tomorrow (1st June) operate its first-ever flights with fare-paying passengers – and it’ll be from DXB to BEY and back.

#157 will depart DXB at 1030 and arrive BEY at 1305. #158 will depart BEY at 1350 and arrive DXB at 1810.

Then, on 2nd June, FZ will start AMM.

#151 will depart DXB 1025 and arrive AMM 1250. #152 will depart AMM at 1335 and arrive DXB 1745.

Both BEY and AMM will operate once-daily.

On the 8th June, FZ will begin DXB-DAM; the next day, it’ll begin DXB-ALY. Both routes will be operated once-daily.

#229 will depart DXB 1910 and arrive DAM 2130. #230 will depart DAM at 2215 and arrive DXB at 0225*.

#177 will depart DXB at 1845 and arrive ALY 2140. #178 will depart ALY at 2225 and arrive DXB 0325*.

have they gotten their first new-build 737s yet? or are they leasing some from D.A.E. or somebody else?

Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter):
Both BEY and AMM will operate once-daily.

Hopefully they get into their rhythm quickly. Utilization needs to break 10 hours per day to be a true LCC.

Great news and looking forward to the start of services. Their prices are extremely reasonable at the moment.

Shouldn't be much of a problem, the 737s are new.

Saw one @ DXB 22may09 when departing for FRA via DOH; it was parked at the opposite Terminal (basically where the biz-jets are). Guess it was delivered the previous day or just at that moment ?



don't throw away tomorrow !

That is interesting. I was shocked to see them getting aircraft so early, but I guess it is closing on a year since their order, so it isnt too strange.

Its first flight which was to Beirut was 100% full.

Here's the water cannon salute it got on arrival in BEY:

I wish the best to Flydubai!


Isnt there a rule in the ME that doesnt allow turnarounds that are less than 45 minutes (or was it 35minutes)?

However, I feel that it may eat some pie of EK and in few months from now it will be interesting to see how it competes with Air Arabia (the dominant LCC of UAE)

The Middle East is made up of many different countries, so if such a rule existed, it would be a country specific rule. There is no region wide aviation regulatory authority like in the EU.

I'm not aware of any country that has such a rule.

In the Middle East, 45 minutes is the minimum an airline schedules for a turn. (I have seen a 40-minute one once.) G9 has stated that it has no option but to have this as it is forced upon it, and that it seeks to reduce it to increase aircraft utilisation. Like G9, J9 has 45-minute turnarounds. Interestingly, 3O, which will be based in CMN (obviously North Africa) and operate to various European destinations, including STN and CRL, also has 45-minute turnarounds, even though most LCCs operating to/from Morocco schedule 25-30 minutes. So, I wonder what the real story is: is it simply something G9/3O/J9 does for a company reason, or is it thrust upon them?

A good article about FZ: http://www.anna.aero/2009/06/05/dubai-launches-new-lcc/

Note:

Quoting Pe@rson (Thread starter):
#229 will depart DXB 1910 and arrive DAM 2130. #230 will depart DAM at 2215 and arrive DXB at 0225*.

#177 will depart DXB at 1845 and arrive ALY 2140. #178 will depart ALY at 2225 and arrive DXB 0325*.

Those timings are perfecty correct, but they will change: from 6th July, DXB-DAM-DXB will depart DXB 1640 and arrive back into DXB at 2355; from 20th July, DXB-ALY-DXB will depart DXB 1110 and arrive back into DXB at 1950.

By the 20th July, FZ will require 4 73Hs.
