The new aircraft, bearing the UAE registration mark A6-MAX, is the first of 76 aircraft on order from Boeing; all of which will be delivered by 2023. Six of these aircraft will join the flydubai fleet by the end of the last quarter of 2017.
The business seat on board 737 MAX 8 aircraft takes comfort to a new level; it’s been tailor-made for flydubai to offer an exceptional travel experience. Enjoy a spacious environment on board and privacy in the cabin; the high, curved shell surrounding the back of the seat provides a sense of seclusion, so you can really unwind and relax during your flight.
If you want to get some sleep during your flight, the MAX business seat can quickly and easily be converted into a bed. When fully reclined, the seat is totally flat and measures 78 inches from top to toe, so you can stretch out and get comfortable before dozing off. Every MAX business seat has a 15.6-inch 1080p HD built-in touchscreen for an immersive inflight entertainment experience.
The economy seat on board MAX aircraft is designed to optimise space and comfort, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your flight. With generous pitch, gentle recline and a bottom cushion that adjusts for support and comfort, the design of the seat in the economy class cabin is just one of the reasons the travel experience with flydubai is hard to beat.
flydubai’s new Boeing 737 MAX 8s will initially be deployed on the furthest points on the carrier’s network. Destinations including Bangkok, Prague, Yekaterinburg and Zanzibar will be among the first to be served by the MAX 8. The additional 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.
