Tickets for deported inmates will also be paid in full. 

“We are honored to be able to provide support to this pioneering initiative, which has secured the release of a large number of insolvent inmates, with the support of the Ministry of Interior and Emarat Al Youm newspaper, and the generous contributions of charitable and philanthropic Emirati individuals and institutions,” Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said. “We look forward to contribute to the release of more eligible indigent inmates through this noble initiative.”
