flyDubai wins Kyrgyz muslim pilgrim tender

flydubai (FZ, Dubai Int'l) has secured a tender to ferry Kyrgyz Muslim faithful from Kyrgyzstan to Saudi Arabia during the Hajj pilgrimage which this year will fall between October 3 to 7.

In its assessment, the Krygyz Spiritual Administration of Muslims said the Emirati carrier was chosen as none of the other applicants conformed to the tender's criteria.

Flydubai to move to DWC in full in 2015 and possibly back to DXB in 2024 when Emirates switches to DWC.
Interesting article here...

The plan would see FlyDubai transfer to Al Maktoum from Dubai International airport next year, before making the switch in reverse in a decade’s time, the document suggests.

The masterplan is still under discussion and has yet to be approved, a Dubai Airports spokesman said

After 2024 FlyDubai will have the option of moving all flights back to Dubai International or keeping some at the Al Maktoum terminal and operating a split-base model.


Why doesn't Flydubai get a massive dedicated terminal at DWC as the Goverments aim is to expand us quickly? Then by 2024 when we reach 100+ aircraft the mutual benefit between a big carrier like Flydubai and a massive carrier like EK combined with a huge unrestricted airport would surely be enormous. Now it's the time to do it properly...

Applied well over a month ago as NTR. over 6000TT 1000 PIC turboprop, but No jet time other than the automated reply following submission of said application, not a peep from them... Have they stopped hiring heavy prop captains in favour of jet experience?

Flights to Srinagar (Kashmir) potentially being lookd at.

The Indian agency has approached the Dubai government and the low-cost carrier flydubai to introduce the flights to Srinagar, the capital of the northernmost Indian state, pending clearance from the New Delhi government

There are no discussions about flying to Srinagar, although it is of interest,” said Sudhir Sreedharan, the airline’s senior vice president commercial for Gulf, Indian subcontinent and Africa.

A new Taliban 'spring offensive' is launched

Apparently we are going to have a lot of fun this summer! OAI, KBL , KDH, OAZ...


Taliban offensive opens with rocket attack on Kabul airport

The Taliban launched their annual “spring offensive” on Monday by firing rockets at Kabul airport, but the attack missed its target and caused no casualties, Afghan officials said.

At least two rockets exploded at 5:00 am (0030 GMT), the exact time that the insurgents had vowed to start a new nationwide operation against US-led foreign forces and Afghan government facilities.

Taliban leaders said last week that the offensive, which will be the last before NATO combat troops withdraw from Afghanistan, would cleanse “the filth of the infidels” from the country.

“Two rockets landed north of Kabul international airport,” Sediq Sediqqi, the interior ministry spokesman, told AFP. “There were no casualties.”

NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed it was investigating the attack on the airport, where it has a military base.

It also said that mortars have been fired at Bagram airport, the biggest ISAF base in Afghanistan, which lies north of Kabul.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attacks via a recognised Twitter account, and said other strikes had been carried out across the country.

The “Khaibar” offensive, named after an ancient battle between Muslims and Jews, will coincide with a second round of elections next month to choose a successor to President Hamid Karzai, who has ruled since the fall of the Taliban in 2001.

About 51,000 US-led NATO troops still deployed in Afghanistan are set to withdraw by December, ending a long and costly battle to defeat the rebels, who launched a fierce insurgency after being ousted from power.

A small number of US troops may stay on from next year on a training and counter-terrorism mission, but the Taliban warned that the insurgency would continue against even a few thousand US troops.

The Taliban “insists on the unconditional withdrawal of all invading forces,” the group said in an English-language statement on its website last week.

The statement said that attacks during the coming “fighting season” would target US military bases, foreign embassies and vehicle convoys, as well as Afghan officials, politicians and translators.

Afghanistan’s fighting season traditionally begins in April or May as snow recedes from the mountains, and the Taliban mark the occasion with an annual declaration to attack foreign forces and unseat the Kabul government.

This may seem a strange question, but for those of you in the application process could you let me know how you applied. Have done a google search, but the flydubai website has nothing about pilot recruitment that I can see, and there is also nothing on the CTC website that I can find (so hopefully they are no longer involved).

Does anyone know the recruitment plans for the future, presumably they still need pilots for the expansion plans? Thanks for any information.

Thanks Flydream,

Already found that, unfortunately it crashes every time I get to the box for phone number so was wondering if that was how other people applied and if it is just my computer at fault.

Go to the careers section on the flydubai website you should be able to find it. Honestly we call ourselves pilots and cant even apply for a job on
our own

Thank you for your useful input. As I said in my original post there appears to be nothing on the flydubai careers website regarding pilot recruitment. In fact when you select "Pilot" it states that there are no positions which match these criteria.

Current vacancies are, however, listed for a variety of other disciplines, which leads me to believe that there is no pilot recruitment going on at the moment, or alternatively that they have enough candidates at this time.

However I am only guessing, so thought I would make use of the wide ranging resource that is pprune to attempt to gather information from those who might have more knowledge on the subject than myself. My apologies if seeing a fellow professional pilot using a professional pilot's internet site in such a manner somehow offends you.

Arcdu, when I applied last year the link I gave you was working fine.
I know they are interviewing at the moment, but maybe they already have a large pool of applicants who passed the initial screening,which could explain why there are no openings on the flydubai website,who knows?
