Gaith Al Gaith, the chief executive of Flydubai has said the low-cost airline is interested in the Airbus A320neo and the Boeing Max, as more fuel-efficient potentials for its fleet expansion, Zawya Dow Jones has reported. "The carrier is in the first phase of studying its fleet expansion and won't make new orders before that is complete," he said. The carrier will receive its 21st aircraft next month, with the remaining 29 in its order of 50 Boeing aircraft to be delivered by 2016. "We will be looking for more aircraft beyond that, and we are looking at the changes in the market over the past six months and the new Max and NEO," Al Gaith said. "We need to make a decision within a year's time," he said.
