Dubai-based Emirates and Flydubai have entered the third year of strategic partnership, flying more than 5.27 million passengers on their network since the beginning of the partnership in October 2017.

Marking the milestone as the partnership enters into its third year, HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Group, and chairman of flydubai said: “The strategic partnership between Emirates and flydubai has been a success, generating benefits for travellers, for both airlines, and for Dubai. Moving forward, both Emirates and flydubai will continue to develop the partnership to deliver even better customer journeys and better value for travellers and all stakeholders.”

The strategic partnership between Emirates and flydubai goes beyond code-sharing in permitted markets, and includes initiatives that span commercial activity such as schedule co-ordination to offer customers more competitive prices, network planning and airport operations to facilitate the smooth flow of passengers between both airlines, and the alignment of frequent flyer programmes to boost earning and redemption opportunities.
