UAE names flydubai best value for money airline

Residents in the UAE have named flydubai as the best value for money airline in a recent poll.The Dubai-based airline, which has only been in operation for two years, collected almost one-third of the vote, followed by Dubai's other airline Emirates.People interested in investing in property in Dubai will find that more UAE residents are encouraged to travel by air because of the introduction of low cost airlines.Dan Healy, chief executive of Real Opinions, which conducted the survey, commented: "The regional airline industry has gone through a transformation in recent years, emulating what happened in the regional flights sector in Europe at the turn of the millennium. "The prolific growth of low cost airlines and the resultant consolidation in this industry segment has naturally created winners and losers, but passengers are the real winners as they now have more choice to better match their budget and required service levels."Emirates 24/7 reported this week that flight tickets to some destinations have reduced by as much as 50 per cent after the summer peak and ahead of Eid Al Adha.
