Emirates enters codeshare agreement with Flybe

Emirates Airline has entered into a codeshare agreement with regional airline, Flybe, in an effort to offer new destinations to both of the carriers' passengers across the UK.

The agreement, expected to launch next month, will see Flybe adopting Emirates Airline’s code on 25 of its networks across the UK, adding 13 new destinations to Emirates Airline’s global network, connecting travellers to a range of destinations, including Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey and Newquay. 

Thierry Antinori, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Emirates Airline said: "Our new codeshare agreement with Flybe will provide our passengers with increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to different cities within the UK to and from Dubai, ultimately offering a smoother, more convenient travel experience."

Emirates Airline offers 16 daily services from the UK to Dubai with another daily service flying from Birmingham that will launch at the beginning of August.
