Boeing’s Next Generation 737 cuts Flydubai fuel costs

Flydubai has said Boeing's Next-Generation 737 has helped the low-cost carrier cut its fuel costs due to the Performance Improvement Package (PIP). "Our latest tests have shown that aircraft, which incorporate the Performance Improvement Package, provide Flydubai with up to 1.6% reduced fuel burn over non-PIP aircraft," said Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of Flydubai. "With a growing fleet, any savings we can make towards our fuel costs are positive from both a financial and environmental perspective. We look forward to Boeing introducing the final part of the package, which will provide us with even greater fuel savings," said Al Ghaith.
