Emirates and Flydubai partnership announces first codeshare routes

Posted 2 October 2017 · Add Comment

Following the commencement of their partnership, Emirates and flydubai have announced that Emirates will expand its network to 29 flydubai destinations across three continents.

Passengers can book from 03 October on Emirates.com, through the Emirates Contact Centres or the travel agents network with travel commencing from 29 October 2017.

HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Group and Chairman of flydubai, said, “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.”

Analyst Saj Ahmad said: "This pact has been a long time in the making and with Emirates and flydubai offering an initial codeshare service on 29 routes, this will naturally expand and benefit customers as the relationship deepens.
 
"Not only will flydubai customers have a better portal and access to more international gateways served by Emirates, but Emirates’ customers too will benefit from meals and baggage allowance being employed at flydubai.
 
"The development and integration of their frequent flyer schemes will almost certainly allow reciprocal point-accumulation between the two airlines with redemption on either carrier. This is just the start of their agreement going forward and its likely that flydubai’s planned move to Dubai World Central will be curtailed somewhat to allow the maturation of routes and connection between the airlines and the two different terminals at Dubai International."
 
Ahmad added: "Flydubai will certainly be able to leverage the strength of Emirates’ huge international network and pull in transfer traffic while Emirates will be able to utilise the massive frequency-based services to places like Russia, where flydubai has been adept at pulling in high volumes of customers as well as higher yield business class passengers.
 
"This move will certainly make like difficult for Air Arabia and Etihad – the latter which doesn’t have a low cost unit and is still restructuring given a string of unsuccessful investments."
