Emi­rates and Flydubai have en­tered into a part­ner­ship which will see the two Dubaibased air­lines part­ner in code shar­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tion in their net­work with co­or­di­nated sched­ul­ing. The agree­ment will al­low Emi­rates to make use of Flydubai’s re­gional net­work and al­low the air­line to make use of the ex­pan­sive global net­work of Emi­rates to al­low more des­ti­na­tions to pas­sen­gers of both air­lines. The goal of this part­ner­ship is to op­ti­mise 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 said “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, to each other and to Dubai.”
