Business Traveller (Middle East) - - News -

FLY­DUBAI HAS RE­CEIVED the first of its 75 B737 MAX 8s on order. CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said the new sin­gle-aisle Boe­ing air­craft marks a “new chap­ter” for the air­line as it will ben­e­fit from “in­creased ef­fi­ciency” and of­fer cus­tomers an “en­hanced ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The air­line’s Rus­sian net­work will soon en­ter dou­ble fig­ures with twice-weekly ser­vices to Voronezh and Makhachkala start­ing Oc­to­ber 29 and Oc­to­ber 31 re­spec­tively, and Ufa re­launch­ing with three flights a week at the end of Oc­to­ber. Rus­sian pas­sen­gers can now re­ceive a free 30-day Visa on Ar­rival in the UAE.

fly­dubai at­trib­uted an AED142.5m ($38.8m) loss for the first half of the year to fuel costs weigh­ing on earn­ings.
