Flydubai gears up to resume operations

17 Jun 2020 by Anithya Balachandran

Flydubai is preparing for the resumption of its commercial services. As a part of this, the airline is rolling out a host of measures that are in line with International Air Transport Association (IATA), World Health Organisation (WHO) and General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) guidelines; and will ensure maximum passenger safety.

The efforts include an extensive disinfection programme across all touchpoints throughout the journey. Manufacturer-certified cleaning products are being used for aircraft disinfection. Lavatories are cleaned every 20-minutes.

High-level filtration in the cabin is ensured through high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA).

The Dubai-based carrier is working along with its stakeholders at Dubai International Airport (DXB) as well as the airports across its network and customers to implement a comprehensive safety programme.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, chief executive officer of Flydubai, said, “We are delighted to hear this announcement by the government authorities; however, we must take a moment to thank the UAE authorities for their strong leadership and continuous guidance during these unprecedented times. The steps that were taken across the UAE will enable us to return to service in a safe and measured way.

“Dubai, as an established centre for international aviation, has always operated to the highest international standards and the combined efforts across the industry over the last few months will allow our passengers to travel once again in a safe environment. We look forward to welcoming our passengers back on board.”

Flydubai will announce further details on its redefined passenger experience and flight schedule soon.
