New Wet Lease Agreement Between Flydubai and Smartwings Announced

The airline located in Dubai, flydubai, has announced a new contract with the airline based in the Czech Republic, Smartwings, to wet lease four Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft from 17 October 2023 to 16 April 2024.

By using four leased aircraft to augment flydubai’s fleet of 79 Boeing 737 aircraft under the Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance (ACMI) arrangement with Smartwings, the airline will be able to increase passenger capacity and meet demand for travel during peak travel times.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, the CEO of flydubai, commented on the arrangement: “We are glad to confirm this new wet lease deal with Smartwings, marking our third arrangement with the carrier since 2019. ACMI agreements are a speciality of Smartwings, an IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) accredited business. During one of the busiest travel times of the year, the leasing of four more aircraft will allow us to maintain operational effectiveness, increase network capacity, and reduce any potential passenger disturbance.

Boeing 737 aircraft are now operated by flydubai in a single fleet consisting of 30 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800, 46 Boeing 737 MAX 8, and three Boeing 737 MAX 9.

“We are happy to have partnered with flydubai on our third ACMI wet leasing deal. According to Jiri Juran, chairman of the board of directors at Smartwings, “this relationship, which we strongly value, will enable us to achieve a higher utilisation of our aircraft and provide our qualified personnel with more chances throughout the winter season.

The flydubai network will use the all-Economy Class aircraft on a few routes, including those to Chattogram, Colombo, Dhaka, Karachi, and Muscat.

Prior to their scheduled departure date, flydubai passengers who have reservations on a flight operated by Smartwings will be informed. Passengers can visit for further details.
