Emirates and flydubai using their strategic partnership are offering more convenience, choice and seamless connectivity for travellers across their combined network, which is expected to reach 168 destinations by the end of May.
Since the revival of their strategic codeshare partnership in early September 2020, close to 500,000 passengers have flown on the Emirates-flydubai combined network, taking advantage of optimised schedules, connections and baggage transfers through Dubai, all on a single ticket, reads a press release.
Top destinations booked through the codeshare include Kabul, Kathmandu, Kyiv, the Maldives and Zanzibar.
Emirates customers can travel on codeshare flights to over 56 unique flydubai destinations, while flydubai customers can choose from over 82 Emirates destinations.
Customers can also take advantage of an enhanced schedule spread across 30 destinations served by both airlines. flydubai recently announced the resumption of flights into 12 destinations in Russia, five cities in Iran, as well as flights to seasonal destinations in Georgia, Turkey and Montenegro, with more destinations expected to be announced in the coming months as countries open their borders for business and tourism.
From 21 May, Emirates' customers will enjoy an even better experience with improved schedules, and connections to 22 flydubai destinations from Terminal 3. Destinations include Basra, Belgrade, Bucharest, Kyiv, Odesa, Prague, Salalah, Sofia, Zanzibar, amongst others.
Customers connecting via Dubai to their final destination can look forward to a smooth transfer experience with reduced connection times between Emirates' Terminal 3 and flydubai's operations in Terminal 2.
