flydubai (FZ, Dubai Int'l) Chairman and CEO Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum has confirmed the LCC is planning to transfer its main hub of operations from Dubai Int'l to Dubai World Central.

“We’re slowly moving flydubai to that side,” he told Gulf News without giving timelines.

As of October 25, 2015 flydubai has been operating several routes of Dubai World Central including Amman Queen Alia, Beirut, Doha Hamad Int'l, Kathmandu, Kuwait, and Muscat.

Sister carrier Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) has also remained vague about its future plans for Dubai World with a complete transfer of hub operations only likely to occur in the 2020s.
