The Dubai-based carrier has operated 23 repatriation flights since March 19.
flydubai has returned 2,800 passengers to their home countries in Afghanistan, Croatia, Egypt, Iran, Russia, Sudan, Somaliland and Thailand.
Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer of flydubai, said they are focused on how to help ease the strain of moving essential goods to where they are needed and bringing people back home where possible.
“We remain committed to supporting requests from governments to operate repatriation flights for their citizens,” he said. “We look forward to resuming our operations when the time is right and we are working closely with the authorities.”
The flights all left from Terminal 2 at Dubai International Airport, with the approval of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA).
flydubai has ten repatriations scheduled next week and will also coordinate closely with authorities to continue bringing UAE Nationals home free-of-charge.
UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has said that Commemoration Day is an occasion of profound significance when "we honour the UAE's brave heroes who gave their lives in defence of justice, in support of security and stability, and in pursuit of peace".
