Emirates and AEGEAN Launch Codeshare Partnership
Emirates recently launched a new codeshare partnership with Greek carrier AEGEAN, allowing its customers to benefit from increased connectivity to eight domestic points in Greece via Athens, using a single ticket.
The Dubai-based Emirates carrier 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: Corfu, Chania, Heraklion, Mykonos, Thira (Santorini), Rhodes, Thessaloniki and Alexandroupolis.
Under the codeshare agreement, AEGEAN will also place its code on Emirates-operated flights between Dubai and Athens International Airport (AIA) for their customers to benefit from smooth connections to Dubai and onward.
Travel itineraries can now be booked on the websites of both airlines, with travel agents as well as online travel agents (OTAs).
Emirates-AEGEAN joint codeshare network to increase
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. The 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 global connectivity across six continents.
