Emirates customers can now travel on codeshare flights to over 30 destinations on Flydubai, while Flydubai customers have over 70 destinations they can travel to on Emirates.

 

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ chief commercial officer said: "We are delighted to announce that our customers can once again take advantage of the complementary strengths of Emirates and Flydubai to access an enhanced network of cities on a single ticket and integrated loyalty programme, enjoy a safe, smooth and stress-free transfer experience through Dubai and have their baggage checked through to their final destination.

 

"The partnership has crossed a number of successful milestones since its inception in 2017 and over the coming months, Emirates and Flydubai will be working together to re-open even more of the world for our customers," added Kazim.

 

Hamad Obaidalla, chief commercial officer at Flydubai said: "We are confident that the demand for travel will continue to increase as more countries gradually start to lift restrictions on international travel. Flydubai has restarted operations to 32 points around the network since June and we expect the number to steadily grow over the next few months. Dubai has put strong health and safety protocols in place which has encouraged well informed passengers to travel, whether for business, leisure or to reunite with their loved ones.

 

"We remain agile in our approach to maximise the utilisation of our fleet by supporting government efforts to operate repatriation flights and increasing cargo-only operations. Our partnership with Emirates will continue to facilitate a more seamless flow of passengers and cargo across our combined networks in the recovery phase," commented Obaidalla.
