Emirates and flydubai partnership announces first codeshare routes
Kolkata, Oct 5 (NITN): Following the commencement of their partnership, Emirates and flydubai recently announced that Emirates has expanded its network to 29 flydubai destinations across three continents.

The new partner network, through its codeshare, offers greater frequency and easier access to more global destinations with the advantage of connecting baggage to the final destination.

Some of the popular codeshare destinations include Lucknow (India), Prague (Czech Republic), Kuwait (Kuwait), Tbilisi (Georgia), Muscat (Oman), and Bucharest (Romania)

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.”

When booked together, as part of the codeshare, Emirates passengers will receive complimentary meals and the Emirates checked baggage allowance on flights operated by flydubai in both Business and Economy Classes.

Under the new partnership, passengers will benefit from a reduced minimum connection time (MCT) between Emirates’ home in Terminal 3 of Dubai airport and flydubai’s in Terminal 2 of 120 minutes.

The partnership will also offer benefits to frequent flyers.

Emirates Skywards members can earn Skywards miles and Skywards Tier Miles on codeshare flights as per the existing Skywards mileage programme.

In addition to the Emirates free checked baggage allowance, Skywards Premium members can also enjoy their extra checked baggage allowances of 20kg (Platinum members), 16kg (Gold members) and 12kg (Silver members) on codeshare flights operated by flydubai.

Skywards Silver, Gold and Platinum members travelling on codeshare flights can access flydubai’s Business Check-in counters and receive priority tags.
