Flydubai reveals a special livery with Argentina’s National Soccer Team



Just days before the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the Argentine Football Association (AFA) and Flydubai signed a collaboration agreement to carry out joint promotional activities in the Middle East.

Initially this will include, during the next few weeks, a series of marketing activations with some of the main players of the Argentinian men’s national soccer team during their stay at the training center in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates.

In addition, this Friday, the arrival of Flydubai’s Boeing 737 MAX 8, registration A6-FKA, could be seen at the Dubai airport wearing a special livery with Lionel Messi, Ángel Di María and Rodrigo De Paul on one of its sides.

These pictures were captured by Cristian Balo, Aviacionline’s Middle East correspondent, as it landed on flight FZ1550 from Tel Aviv.
