Middle East's flydubai interested in Boeing's proposed mid-sized jet

DUBAI (Reuters) - Flydubai is interested in the mid-sized jet that Boeing <BA.N> is studying whether to develop, the Middle East carrier's chief executive said on Wednesday.

Chief Executive Ghaith al-Ghaith told Reuters at the Dubai Airshow the airline wants to know more about the proposed jet.

Boeing is looking at potentially filling a market gap between narrow and wide-body jets with a new aircraft that could seat 220 to 270 passengers.
