Emirates and flydubai have announced 16 additional codeshare destinations to which Emirates passengers can travel on a single ticket. The new expanded network includes exotic destinations such as Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro and Kathmandu.

Emirates president, Sir Tim Clark said: “We are thrilled with the positive response from travellers. Nearly 14 000 sectors have been ticketed during the first week of operation, surpassing our expectations. We have witnessed strong demand for travel from Europe and the United States to south Asian destinations.” 

Flydubai ceo, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said: “The many benefits of Dubai’s international aviation hub have been recognised by travellers who have already shown they are keen to explore the world together. This announcement will allow them to discover another 16 destinations as well as enjoy the unique personality of each airline.”

Emirates passengers in business and economy class on flights operated by flydubai will receive complimentary meals and the Emirates checked baggage allowances. Skywards Premium members will also enjoy their extra checked baggage allowances on codeshare flights. 

Under the partnership, passengers will benefit from a reduced minimum connection time in Dubai of two hours between Emirates’ Terminal 3 and flydubai’s Terminal 2. 

Emirates frequent flyers will earn miles on codeshare routes, while Skywards Silver, Gold and Platinum members on codeshare flights will have access to flydubai’s business check-in counters and receive priority tags.
