flydubai took to the skies with its first business class flight. The airline announced the launch of the new service based on customer demand.
Passengers of flight FZ729 to Kiev’s Boryspil Airport in Ukraine were the first to experience the new product. The new service offers a variety of customised services such as a dedicated Business Team, priority check-in and a fast track through immigration.
The new Business Class cabin comprises 12 reclining seats. Ghaith Al Ghaith, flydubai’s chief executive officer, said: “We have conducted extensive focus groups with our frequent flyers, and their feedback has been instrumental in making the Business Class experience. The new class offers a spacious new cabin configuration, variety of the menu and in-flight entertainment.”
The airline will gradually expand its business class services across its network. The airline will receive three new aircraft fitted with Business Class by the end of the year, along with retrofitting nine aircraft from its existing fleet of 31 aircraft.
