Emirates and flydubai announce extensive partnership agreement

Emirates and flydubai have entered a partnership which will see the two Dubai-based airlines partner in code sharing and collaborate their network with coordinated scheduling. The agreement will allow Emirates to make use of flydubai’s regional network and allow flydubai to make use of Emirates expansive global network to allow both airlines passengers more destinations.

The goal of this partnership is to optimize the networks of both airlines to open more city pairings and to feed passengers from the networks of the airlines to each-other. Both Emirates and flydubai are owned by Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD) but are managed and operated independently.

The airlines will also further develop their hub at Dubai international airport.

HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Group and Chairman of flydubai
“This is an exciting and significant development for Emirates, flydubai, and Dubai aviation. Both airlines have grown independently and successfully over the years, and this new partnership will unlock the immense value that the complementary models of both companies can bring to consumers, each airline, and to Dubai.”
