In response to the recent temporary grounding of 171 Boeing 737 MAX 9 jetliners by US regulators for safety inspections, flydubai has assured that its three aircraft of the same model remain unaffected.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued an Emergency Airworthiness Directive (EAD) on January 6, 2024, prompting flydubai to confirm that their Boeing 737 MAX 9 fleet is exempt from the directive’s scope.

A spokesperson from flydubai stated, “We can confirm that the three Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft in our fleet are not affected by the Emergency Airworthiness Directive. Flydubai operates these aircraft with a deactivated mid-aft exit door configuration, a detail not referenced in the directive.”

This announcement comes amid heightened scrutiny of the Boeing 737 MAX series, signaling flydubai’s commitment to ensuring the safety and compliance of its aircraft.

The airline’s strategic approach, involving specific modifications to its fleet, has shielded its Boeing 737 MAX 9 planes from the regulatory measures affecting other aircraft of the same model.
