New partnership enables flydubai passengers to pay for flights at retail outlets across the UAE Dubai, UAE, 18 May 2012: flydubai, Dubai's innovative low-cost carrier, has signed a joint partnership with leading Sharia-compliant financial services group, Islamic Finance Company PJSC (aafaq), further expanding its network of payment options across the UAE.
The collaboration will see both companies enhance business opportunities to new audiences, while providing flydubai's passengers with an additional window at which they can pay for flight bookings.
Commenting on the new partnership, Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO of flydubai, said: "Since our launch in 2009 we have strived to provide more payment options for our passengers and this new partnership with the aafaq increases our reach even further."
The strategy of the aafaq is to provide comprehensive financial solutions and services. Through this agreement the aim is to expand its marketplace for its joint partners by showcasing consistent financial services and activity in line with Sharia-compliant law.
Through this agreement, passengers who book through flydubai.com or flydubai's call centre now have 24 hours to complete payment windows at any aafaq outlet across the UAE. Customers can also pay at any of the airline's existing payment partners, which include exchange houses, Emirates Post and Aswaaq supermarkets.
flydubai, the world's fastest-growing start-up airline, has built a regional network of more than 45 destinations in just three years, making it the second largest carrier operating out of Dubai International Airport.
Its fares include everything a person needs to travel - i.e. the price of the seat, all taxes and 7kg of hand baggage - with everything else, such as checked baggage, seats with extra legroom, refreshments and in-flight entertainment offered as optional extras, putting passengers in control of how much they choose to spend.
Flights can be purchased from flydubai's website (flydubai.com), its call centre (+971 4 231 1000), flydubai Travel Shops and through travel partners.
