Flydubai to Beat the Credit crunch?

According to wire reports The Gulf emirate of Dubai announced today that it is to launch its first budget airline. It will be called flydubai and will start with flights to the Lebanese capital of Beirut on June 1 and to Jordan's capital Amman on June 2, chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al-Maktoum told reporters. Flydubai will operate two next-generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft on both routes and apparently this is all happening, "despite the global financial crisis."

Maybe that's why they need a budget airline?
