Employees of flydubai reportedly received a 22-week salary bonus after posting record profits, sources told Expatmedia.net.

The budget airline is the sister company of Emirates, who also announced a 24-week salary bonus for employees in May. Flydubai marked its 14th anniversary on June 1.

“We received our bonus because we reached out target profits,” an employee confirmed to Expatmedia.net.

Another employee, who wished to remain anonymous, confirmed that the bonus was the biggest they received. “Flydubai received a bonus equivalent to 22 weeks’ salary,” the employee told Expatmedia.net. “If we reach our target revenue again next year, then we will receive profit sharing again,” the source said.

Dubai-based flydubai reported profits of Dh1.2 billion for 2022, which reflects a 43 percent increase in profits from 2021. It’s annual revenue also grew by 72 percent to Dh91. Billion compared to Dh5.3 billion in 2021.

The airline carried 10.6 million passengers, an 89 percent increase from 2021. Flydubai also hired 1,300 employees last year in its biggest recruitment drive.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of flydubai, commented, “flydubai’s record performance for 2022 is a direct result of the carrier’s strong business model as well as its adaptability and agility during challenging times which has cemented its position as a key contributor to the success of Dubai’s aviation hub. flydubai remained committed to maintaining the highest levels of cost and operational efficiencies while preserving and growing its workforce over the past two years. This meant the carrier was quick to cater to the pent-up demand and support Dubai’s accelerated recovery.”

“flydubai’s second consecutive year of profitability since the start of the pandemic is testament to the exceptional contribution of its skilled team and the positive environment we operate in, which is conducive to growth and success. I look forward to seeing the vital role flydubai plays in the continued growth of the aviation sector; a key driver in realising the Dubai Economic Agenda D33,” he added. ICA/Expat Media
