Flydubai

I have done several searches on PPRuNe/google etc and cant seem to find too much info except for flight attendants, and FlyDubais basic info on their website. Was wondering if anybody has been offered an interview for a pilot position? Anybody know the T & C on this start up company? Anybody have a contact email or address or number for flight ops management? Any help appreciated!!!

Fly Dubai has hired captains already and conducted first officer interviews in January 09, I am not sure if they are conducting more interviews this year. They will start ops around May. The package includes 42 days vacation, $43,000 Dirhams per month (11,700) for FO and 57,000 dirhams for captains per month (15,500) That includes basic pay, flight pay, housing, and transportation. I can't provide any contact emails (sorry) , all I can say is to keep an eye on their website and they will provide a link or address in which to apply to. I hope this helps a little bit. From what I saw while at the interview, it appears to be a great gig. Good luck.

Fly

You quite obviously have no idea of what accommodation costs in Dubai, even in the current depressed situation.

Forget Dubai property. Try Al Hamrah village in RAK the new Sharjah bypass E611 is open only 50 mins in rush hour to DXB and nice town house on golf course and beach I am going to be paying 12500 rent a month and start shortly with FlyDubai.

Wiley, thanks for your help....

Quidditch ace, congrats on the new job. Have you got a contact email for pilot applications at FlyDubai, or possibly a phone number? You can PM me if you would rather.

Get started!!!

Flydubai to start India services
Dubai: 5 hours and 38 minutes ago Budget airline Flydubai, will begin flying to five Indian destinations - Pune, Chandigarh, Amritsar, Jaipur and Goa - in the second quarter of this year, a media report said.
The flights, however, will depend on the availability of aircraft, as the airline has not received any of its aircraft so far, Dubai's Business 24/7 newspaper said.
'No aircraft has arrived yet but we are on schedule to launch the airline,' chief executive Ghaith al Ghaith told the newspaper, adding, 'We will soon be making an announcement about the airline's launch. All I can say for now is it is on track.'
The budget carrier, assisted in its initial stages by Emirates, has 54 Boeing 737-800s on order, worth $4 billion. It ordered 50 planes from Boeing and four from leasing company - Babcock and Brown - during the Farnborough International Airshow in July last year. Boeing's 58-day strike, which ended in October last year, has raised doubts over delivery delays for Flydubai.
The airline said in November that it was in talks with Boeing to understand the breadth of the delay.
With an aim of serving destinations within four hours of flying distance from Dubai, such as India, Pakistan, Eastern Europe and parts of Africa, flydubai plans to serve about 70 destinations by 2014.

I applied through Emirates who do the interview. I think they have enough people now and may have stopped interviewing, not sure.

Got an offer...sort of

Hi All,

First time posting on the forum but have been reading and getting lots of great info here.
I got an offer from Flydubai recently after being told my interview went successfully a few months back; however, there is no set class date...it is said to be somewhere between March and April or possible June or even end of the year on seperate occasions. And the so-called contract reads extremely vague.

I probably should feel happy about the offer, however, the vague contract and the unknown makes me wonder...

Anyone out there in the same boat like me?

I too am awaiting (good) news I hope!
Think there could be quite a few of us with our fingers crossed just at the moment!
Let's just hope that this whole thing doesn't become yet another casualty of the world economic mess we're all in!

Good luck to all!

Dispatch within the company

Hi guys...
I've been reading this thread for quite some time now, is anyone aware of a possible flight dispatcher position within the company?? I applied last january and right after they called me asking for some working credentials (certifications, dispatch license ecc...) , and I was told that they will call me for a phone interview followed by an assesment day in dubai. but as of now I am still waiting for the fatidic "PHONE CALL"
