FlyDubai in talks to buy a minimum of 50 aircraft

Gaith Al Gaith, the chief executive of FlyDubai has said the low-cost carrier is in talks with Boeing and Airbus to buy at least 50 aircraft, possibly at the Dubai Airshow in November, Gulf News has reported. Currently, FlyDubai flies to 57 cities with a fleet of 29 Boeing 737 aircraft delivered so far out of the 50 on firm orders. "By 2015, this order will be exhausted when we will need additional aircraft - the way we are growing now. So, we need to make fresh orders for delivery beyond 2015," Al Gaith told the daily. "We are planning to place an order this year of at least 50 aircraft," he said. "We are currently talking to both Boeing and Airbus on this deal."
