About Flydubai

Flydubai is a low-cost air carrier based at Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates that operates flights in conjunction with its sister airline, Emirates . It was founded in 2008 and commenced operations the following year in 2009. Flydubai is wholly owned by the government of Dubai and also has a secondary base at Al Maktoum International Airport. The airline owns a fleet of more than 50 airplanes with which it operates its flights, all of which are Boeing 737s.

From its Dubai hub, the airline flies to nearly 100 destinations spread across the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Africa. As it is a sister airline of Emirates, it endeavours to only fly to destinations that are not covered by that airline. Some of its most popular routes are the Flydubai flights going to Prague, Delhi, Amman, Jeddah and Istanbul. The airline does not have any codeshare arrangements and has not joined any airline alliance as yet.

Online check-in

All passengers can check in online for a Flydubai flight unless they're travelling to Madinah or Jeddah. To check in online, passengers will need their last name and booking reference number.

If they are only travelling with hand luggage, passengers who have checked in online can go straight through security to the boarding gate. If they have checked luggage however, this will need to be dropped off at one of the airline's desks. It is also possible to check in at the airport, starting from 3 hours before a flight up until 1 hour beforehand.
