UAE’s largest airline, Emirates has entered into a new codeshare partnership with Greece’s national flag carrier AEGEAN, allowing its customers to benefit from increased connectivity to eight domestic Greek points via Athens, using a single ticket.
Under the codeshare agreement, Emirates will place its code on AEGEAN operated flights, providing customers with a convenient and seamless booking experience as well as one consistent baggage policy to popular destinations such as Kerkyra, Chania, Irakleion, Mikonos, Thira, Rhodes, Thessaloniki, and Alexandropoulos.
As per the statement, “Travel itineraries can now be booked through their official websites, with travel agents as well as online travel agents (OTAs), for travel immediately.”
Furthermore, AEGEAN will place its code on Emirates-operated flights between Dubai and Athens for their customers to benefit from smooth connections to Dubai and onward.
According to the statement, “Starting October 2022, Emirates and AEGEAN will further increase their joint codeshare network to include eight more European regional routes via Athens, including Bucharest, Belgrade, and Naples, among others, as well as westwards on Emirates’ flights to New York Newark from Athens, and New York JFK from Milan.”
Emirates currently serves Athens with 12 weekly flights operated by a Boeing 777. These additional codeshare routes will be subject to receiving the necessary regulatory approvals.
“Through its codeshare agreements with more than 26 carriers, two rail partners as well as 110 interline partners worldwide, Emirates offers its customers truly global connectivity across 6 continents,” as per the statement.
Earlier this year, Emirates and Air Canada signed a strategic partnership agreement that will create more options for customers when traveling on the carriers’ networks while also enhancing the customer experience throughout the journey.
