flydubai showcases new business product
flydubai, the Dubai-based airline, showcased its new Business Class seat offering to the travel trade industry at the recently concluded Arabian Travel Market (ATM). The new recliner seat will be gradually introduced to the Business Class cabin of flydubai’s fleet as part of an ongoing product development investment programme.
The new Business Class recliner seat, developed by HAECO, has been uniquely tailored by JPA Design to reflect the design values of the innovative flat-bed seat by Thompson which is available on flydubai’s Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 aircraft. The new seat features the same high-quality materials as well as comparable design principles to optimise space and comfort for passengers.
flydubai introduced the new Business Class recliner seat on one of its aircraft in November 2021. The airline will roll out a retrofit plan for a number of its existing aircraft, as well as fitting the new Business Class cabin product on future aircraft deliveries.
flydubai operates a single fleet-type of 63 Boeing 737 aircraft and includes: 34 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800, 26 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 3 Boeing 737 MAX 9. The airline will take delivery of 18 more aircraft by the end of 2022 and is schedule to retire seven B737-800 NGs.
