Emirates and flydubai rejoin to offer seamless international travel
Travel to over 100 destinations worldwide…
After many months of travel restrictions, the world has finally reopened to international travel over the last month or so. Dubai-based airline, Emirates, in particular has slowly reintroduced more and more flights around the world.
Following the increasing demand for travel, Emirates and other popular Dubai-based airline, flydubai have once again partnered up to offer customers, on both airlines, seamless travel to over 100 destinations worldwide, connecting through Dubai.
According to Dubai Media Office, ‘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.’
If you didn’t know, a code-share flight is an agreement where two or more airlines share a flight, meaning one airline is able to book a seat on a flight that’s operated by another airline.
