Dubai | February 5, 2015– flydubai recently took delivery of its 44th Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The vision of the UAE Government together with its focus on the development of world-class infrastructure has enabled flydubai to grow its fleet, one of the youngest in the skies today, with an average of 3.1 years.
