In latest development in aviation, UAE-based airline FlyDubai has entered into the luxury class category. The carrier touted its new service on Twitter on Nov. 9, as it awarded members of a private travel club with lifetime VIP passes for first-class flights with Flydubai and its sister airline, Emirates. It is happy to grant these benefits to their loyal customers, who presumably would rather be able to spend their money on other luxuries than airfare.
Why is FlyDubai Adding Luxury First Class?
The budget airline FlyDubai is adding a luxury first class to its planes in a move to attract high-end travelers. The airline will be the first in the Middle East to offer such a service. The decision to add a luxury first class was made in order to compete with other airlines in the region that offer similar services. FlyDubai hopes that the addition of this new class will help it to attract more business and first-class travelers. FlyDubai plans to start offering the new class of service on its flights between Dubai and Beirut, starting in September 2019.
The airline will also add first-class service on its flights to Jeddah and Dammam later this year. The new first-class cabin will feature lie-flat seats, private suites, and an inflight bar. FlyDubai says that it will offer passengers “unparalleled levels of comfort and convenience”. The addition of a luxury first class is a significant change for FlyDubai, which has traditionally been a budget airline. However, the airline says that it is committed to offering its passengers “the best possible travel experience”.
Design of the Cabin
As FlyDubai expands its business into the luxury travel market, the airline is paying close attention to the design of its cabin. The goal is to create a space that is both comfortable and stylish, with a focus on quality materials and finishes. To that end, FlyDubai has enlisted the help of renowned interior design firm JPA Design.
Together, they have created a beautiful and modern cabin that features luxurious leather seats, sleek wood paneling, and an overall feeling of spaciousness. The result is an incredibly welcoming and relaxing space that will make even the longest flight feel like a breeze. So if you’re looking for an airline that knows how to treat its passengers in style, FlyDubai is the clear choice.
Advantages to Flying First Class
There are many advantages to flying first class, and with FlyDubai’s expansion into luxury classes, even more people can enjoy them! First class passengers enjoy more space and comfort in their seats, as well as access to exclusive airport lounges and priority boarding. They also receive better service from airline staff and are often served complimentary meals and drinks. These perks make flying first class a much more enjoyable and relaxing experience.
Pricing and Routes
As FlyDubai expands its luxury offerings, it’s important to keep an eye on pricing and routes. The airline currently offers three tiers of service: economy, business, and first class. While the airline hasn’t released specific prices for its new luxury classes, it’s safe to say that they’ll be significantly higher than economy fares.
Business and first class tickets will likely start at around $2,000-3,000 roundtrip. FlyDubai currently flies to over 90 destinations across the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe. With the expansion into luxury classes, we can expect to see even more routes added to the airline’s growing network.
FlyDubai is a airline that has been expanding its fleet and services rapidly to meet the needs of an increased customer base. The company has plans to break into the luxury market by providing classes that offer first-class service at economy prices. This is an interesting development for the airline, and it will be interesting to see how this new venture pans out.
