Through agreements with 29 codeshare partners, 117 interline partners and 11 rail partners intermodal, Emirates offers its customers a network of more than 800 destinations in more than 100 countries.

These partnerships with more than 140 carriers have enabled the Dubai company to expand its offer without integrating an airline alliance such as Star Alliance, Sky Team or oneworld, while multiplying the possibilities of connectivity on the same ticket for the benefit of its customers.

America : Emirates passengers to the United States have access to more than 200 American cities of the United network via Chicago, Houston or San Francisco. Emirates also flies to dozens of destinations in Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America. As for passengers traveling on the Emirates network, they have the choice of a large number of destinations beyond Dubai to the Middle East, Africa, Central Asia and South Asia. The partnership between Emirates and Air Canada offers seamless connectivity to 232 destinations across three continents, including the Americas, the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent.

Europe : Emirates offers flights in partnership with five European airlines, Air Malta, Air Baltic, Aegean Airlines, TAP Portugal and Siberia Airlines, as well as with its 35 interline partners to reach more than 313 cities on this continent, including leisure destinations in the Mediterranean. Emirates’ rail partners in Germany and Spain offer ground connectivity to explore Europe by train while traveling on a single ticket.

Asia : Emirates’ vast Asian network is strengthened by nine codeshare partners such as Japan Airlines, Korean Air and Garuda, which serve more than 150 popular cities in Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, Japan and the Philippines, and many tourist and business hotspots.

Australia : Often considered one of the most important partnerships in the industry, the relationship between Emirates and Qantas provides joint access to more than 60 Australian destinations not served by Emirates. Qantas customers can travel to Dubai and onwards to more than 65 cities in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, well beyond Qantas’ international network. Emirates Skywards and Qantas Frequent Flyer frequent flyers can earn and redeem miles while flying on both carriers and access each airline’s lounges at airports around the world. Emirates’ partnership with Jetstar (a subsidiary of Qantas) also makes it possible to reach cities in Asia with a single ticket.

Africa : Over the years, Emirates’ presence in Africa has improved connectivity with a larger offer to regional destinations across the continent. Through codeshares with South African Airways, Airlink, Royal Air Maroc, Tunis Air, and interline routes with a dozen other regional carriers, the company has extended its reach to nearly 130 routes in Africa.

Middle East : the company’s key partnership with flydubai has strengthened traffic flows from its Dubai hub while improving connectivity to more than 215 destinations in 98 countries, and more than 250 codeshare flights are operating daily. Over 80 unique flydubai destinations are available to Emirates customers. As for flydubai passengers, they have access to more than 100 Emirates destinations. Over the past two years, more than 2 million customers have traveled on the two carriers’ shared networks through this partnership. This cooperation offers easy connectivity at Dubai International Airport (DXB) between Terminals 2 and 3, baggage transfer, as well as reciprocal benefits under the joint loyalty program, Emirates Skywards.

“These partnerships have helped improve Dubai’s connectivity to the world, providing direct and indirect connections to over 800 cities, driving more tourism to our hub and boosting business and trade opportunities. These partnerships have also fostered inbound tourism from over 100 countries by facilitating connection opportunities and travel via destinations served exclusively by our partners. As we enter our next phase of growth, codeshare and interline partnerships will be a cornerstone of our future success and a central part of our business strategy. We are actively working to develop them further to offer an even greater choice of destinations to our customers”, comments Adnan Kazim, Chief Commercial Officer of Emirates.
