In effect FlyDubai is Emirates local regional arm, and the airline today ordered 225 more of the 737Max.

The order will be made up of a firm order of 175 and 50 options. At least 50 of the first batch will be the Max-10, with the rest an as yet unspecified mix of -8 & -9.

This sort of volume speaks loudly to the intentions of the airline to dominate – just as Emirates has tried on long haul, the immediate geographical area out to around 2,000 miles – flydubai cealry has big ambitions and the more aircraft it operates the more it can feed Emirates long haul operations.
