Fly Dubai (FZ) airline

FlyDubai (FZ) budget airline Dubai tel for bookings +971-4-3010800

FlyDubai (or flydubai, Fly Dubai, airline code FZ) is a budget carrier operating out of Dubai with first flight date of 01 June 2009 from Dubai to Beirut. A low-cost carrier for Dubai was first announced and established by the Dubai Government in March 2008, and the name FlyDubai was announced June 2008. Initially, FlyDubai was to operate out of the new Al Maktoum International Airport in Jebel Ali (DWC) but in March 2009 FlyDubai announced they would be flying out of a refurbished Terminal 2 at Dubai International Airport although the FlyDubai website still said "We will be based at Al Maktoum International" at the time of the announcement (11 March 2009 press release). FlyDubai might, or will, move to JXB at some future date. T2 is the terminal on the Sharjah side (or north side) of Dubai Airport and sees much less activity than T1 which most people know, and T3 which opened late in 2008 and is dedicated to Emirates Airlines. FlyDubai is being launched with the support of Emirates Airlines apparently (but we don't really know what that means). The big birds launched by Fly Dubai generally flap off to destinations within about 5 hours from Dubai, much the same as Air Arabia started off doing when they launched their budget flights from Sharjah Airport in October 2003.
