Following the commencement of their partnership, Emirates and flydubai will expand its network to 29 flydubai destination across three continents. The new partner network will offer greater frequency and easier access to more global destinations with the advantage of connecting baggage to the final destination.
HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Group and
Chairman of flydubai, says: “This is an exciting first step in unlocking the benefits of the partnership for passengers who will have the opportunity to enjoy the unique advantages each airline offers as well as greater choice and flexibility when connecting via Dubai. This is just the start and as we expand the partner network in the coming months we will open up more opportunities for our passengers to explore the world.”
The announcement is an initial phase of the extensive agreement that will, in future phases, see the creation of additional city pair connections as the codeshare agreement is expanded and both airlines’ networks are optimised.
