The MAX Aircraft Rejoins flydubai’s Fleet

The first five of flydubai’s 14 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft have completed their operational readiness flights and have been approved by the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to return to service. They join other MAX aircraft that returned to service in the fleets of operators in Europe, the UK, North and South America.

flydubai recently operated its first flight with its Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from Dubai International (DXB) to Sialkot International Airport (SKT).  The flight FZ 327 departed at 06:30 and landed at 10:12.  The four additional Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will operate flights to Karachi, Multan and Tehran during the course of the day.

 Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO, flydubai, said, “With the return to service for the Boeing 737 MAX today this marks the end of 22 months of diligent work undertaken by the global community of regulators and the uncompromising efforts of the flydubai team in preserving and returning the aircraft to passenger service.  Now is the time for our MAX aircraft to fly once again.”

 The remaining nine MAX aircraft will continue to join the fleet with one aircraft scheduled to rejoin the fleet every 10 days.  The aircraft will supplement and support the existing flight schedule serving flydubai’s network of 76 destinations.
