New offices reflect the need for operational efficiencies, says CEO
Flydubai will be moving to new offices in 2019, the company has announced.
The Dubai-based airline, which shares a hub with Emirates at Dubai International Airport, broke ground on a new 100,000 square metre site on the Emirates Road in anticipation of a growth in operations that will require all teams to be based out of one location, according to CEO Ghaith al Ghaith.
“The biggest advantage is that we will be able to bring together our teams under one roof,” he said. “The operational efficiencies and benefits that our new headquarters will bring reflect the continued development of the aviation sector in the UAE.”
Flydubai is on a growth spree this year after announcing it would work more closely with Emirates in a landmark announcement in July this year.
At the Dubai Airshow in November, the airline placed a $27 billion order with US plane-maker Boeing for up to 225 of its 737 Max aircraft, the largest ever single-aisle order by a Middle East airline in history.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
