The partnership between the Dubai-based carriers initially began with codeshare flights to 29 cities.
Following its rapid engagement and profits, both airlines addressed the existing demand as customers realize the benefits of increased flight frequencies, and expanded access to global destinations on a single ticket.
Benefits such as the alignment of the frequent flyer programme, the convenience of checking in their baggage through to the final destination, smooth transfers during transit in Dubai and more can be enjoyed by its customers.
For bookings under the codeshare, Emirates passengers will receive complimentary meals and the Emirates checked baggage allowance on flights operated by flydubai in both Business and Economy.
