Flydubai postpones launch of Budapest flights

Flydubai airlines has postponed the launch of its flights to Budapest planned for October 1, due to the grounding of its fleet of Boeing 737 Max aircraft, website Arabian Business reports.

Boeing has grounded all of its 737 Max models worldwide, following crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

That decision has also hit Ryanair, HVG notes.

Those who have already bought tickets for flights between Budapest and Dubai can transfer to other Dubai flights, or to any other Flydubai destination, or may obtain a refund.

Ryanair has announced that it is preparing for a lower-than-expected increase in passenger volumes, closing loss-making bases during the winter and next summer.
