Travellers from Thessaloniki, northern Greece, will soon be able to seamlessly connect via Dubai to Emirates’ flights across its global network under the airline’s codeshare partnership with flydubai.
flydubai will launch a three times weekly service between Dubai and Thessaloniki from June 15. The airline will operate a Boeing 737 on the route with 162 seats in Economy Class and 12 seats in Business Class.
Travellers from Thessaloniki and surrounding areas will be able to travel on flydubai from Thessaloniki to Dubai, and then easily connect onto Emirates’ flights to destinations such as Johannesburg, Adelaide, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore and others. Customers can book their entire journey on Emirates or flydubai and travel on one ticket.
Operating on a Tuesday, Friday and Sunday, flight FZ 770, will depart Thessaloniki at 2:35pm and arrive in Dubai at 8:30pm conveniently ahead of Emirates’ flights departing for these destinations. The return flight, FZ769, will leave Dubai at 9:05am and arrive in Thessaloniki at 1:35pm, also enabling seamless connections for travellers connecting to Thessaloniki on flydubai from Emirates’ flights, especially from destinations in Australia, such as Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, as well as those in Asia, such as Bangkok, Beijing, Singapore and Shanghai.
On many of the Asian and Australian services, customers from Thessaloniki can experience Emirates’ popular double decker A380 aircraft, which offers spacious seats in Economy Class, lie flat seats in Business Class and private suites in First Class, along with an on board lounge for First and Business Class customers and a shower spa for First Class customers.
