The plane missed the runway on its second attempt to land and crashed some 300 meters (nearly 1,000 feet) away from the airstrip. The incident took place at 03:50 local time (00:50 GMT) on Saturday.
Poor visibility caused by heavy rain has been cited as the primary reason for the crash. The wind velocity is reported to have reached 22 meters per second at the time of the crash.
FlyDubai, a low cost Dubai airline company, was founded on March 19, 2008. The crash is the first fatal incident in the company's history.
