Emirates And FlyDubai Are Not Merging But They Are Partnering Up For Something Exciting

Emirates Fly Dubai

Emirates Airlines and FlyDubai have announced a partnership but have confirmed they are NOT merging. 

The two airlines on Monday released a statement that they will be working together on an 'extensive partnership' which will see them codeshare, but still be managed independently. 

The new arrangement will allow FlyDubai passengers access to Emirates' extensive network and enable Emirates customers access to FlyDubai's regional network. 

HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Group and Chairman of Flydubai said

  "This is an exciting and significant development for Emirates, Flydubai, and Dubai aviation. Both airlines have grown independently and successfully over the years, and this new partnership will unlock the immense value that the complementary models of both companies can bring to consumers, each airline, and to Dubai.”

The partnership will also extend to streamlining services within Dubai International Airport 

The airlines will align systems and operations 'to ensure a seamless travel experience'.
