John Tighe, JPA's design director leading the Flydubai design project said; "To seek inspiration that will help inform the final cabin design, JPA has already spent a good deal of time immersing into the culture, colour and sights of Dubai. We've compared flight experiences on airlines in the region and have been getting to know the Flydubai family of crew, engineers and management team.  They are a warm, friendly, smart and ambitious airline, have a clear vision of where they wish to go and value their customers highly.
