Emi­rates fly­dubai code­share takes off

Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Upfront -

THE EMI­RATES FLY­DUBAI code­share re­cently took off with 29 fly­dubai des­ti­na­tions now part of the Emi­rates net­work. These in­clude cities where Emi­rates doesn’t fly to or where fly­dubai en­joys strong cov­er­age such as in Rus­sia (six), Iran (five) and south-east Europe (Bel­grade, Sara­jevo, Sofia).

Emi­rates pas­sen­gers who book flights un­der the code­share re­ceive free meals on fly­dubai and the same checked bag­gage al­lowance as nor­mal in busi­ness and econ­omy. The two aim to of­fer two-hour con­nec­tion times be­tween Ter­mi­nal 3 and 2.

EK Sky­wards mem­bers earn miles on code­share flights. Sil­ver, gold and plat­inum mem­bers will en­joy 12kg, 16kg and 20kg re­spec­tively of checked bag­gage al­lowance on flights op­er­ated by Fly­dubai, and use the car­rier’s busi­ness check-in coun­ters.

Gold mem­bers of Fly­dubai’s Open pro­gramme can ac­cess busi­ness check-in desks and re­ceive pri­or­ity bag­gage tag and de­liv­ery for Emi­rates flights but not lounge or fast-track ac­cess at T3.

Fu­ture phases of the deal will see both car­ri­ers agree ad­di­tional city pair code­shares and other fre­quent flier ben­e­fits.
