The UAE carriers Emirates and flydubai said their combined network of destinations is expected to reach 168 by the month-end.

The two airlines revived their codeshare partnership in early September 2020. Since then Emirates customers can travel on codeshare flights to over 56 flydubai destinations, while passengers on the budget airline can fly to over 82 Emirates destinations, the airlines said in a statement Monday.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Group and Chairman of flydubai, said the close collaboration between Emirates and flydubai also benefits Dubai. “We’re confident that both airlines will rebuild their networks even better, as they chart the path to recovery.”
