Emirates and FlyDubai - 6 months of partnership
Initially, the partnership started with codeshare flights to 29 cities. But the network expanded very quickly due to demand. Through this partnership, passengers can travel more easily to the desired destinations via Dubai, all flights on a single ticket. They can plan quick connections between Emirates and FlyDubai flights, and hold luggage can be picked up at their final destination.
Both Arab airlines have extensive networks of destinations. Emirates flies to 141 destinations, including Newark via Athens, Zagreb and Phnom Penh. And later this year, Emirates will start services to London Stansted and Santiago de Chile.
flydubai flies to 97 from destinations, of which 80 are not on the Emirates network, which is a very important addition between the 2 airlines. We remind you that FlyDubai flies to Bucharest, while Emirates bypasses Romania.
Currently, the 2 airlines offer codeshare flights on 90 destinations, with others joining the partnership this year. Even for those who want to travel from Bucharest, they can plan their flights in codeshare with FlyDubai and Emirates.
2 companies will continue to provide quality services through this partnership. Emirates passengers will benefit from the same services on FlyDubai flights. Emirates Skywards members will be able to benefit from loyalty program services and codeshare flights with FlyDubai.
