Emirates and Aegean Announce Codeshare Partnership
Emirates has announced a new codeshare partnership with Aegean, allowing its customers to connect across eight Greek destinations via Athens using a single ticket.
The Dubai-based airline will place its EK flight code on services operated by Aegean, offering its customers a convenient and seamless booking experience, as well as a consistent baggage allowance, to popular destinations such as: Kerkyra, Chania, Irakleion, Mykonos, Thira, Rhodes, Thessaloniki and Alexandroupolis.
Under the codeshare agreement, the Greek carrier will also place its A3 code on Emirates-operated flights between Dubai and Athens so that its customers can enjoy seamless connections to the Emirati capital and beyond. Travel itineraries can now be booked from both companies’ websites and their regular channels.
From October 2022, Emirates and Aegean will further increase their joint codeshare network to include eight more intra-European routes via Athens, including Bucharest, Romania; Belgrade, Serbia and Naples, Italy among others, as well as westbound on Emirates’ flights to Newark, New Jersey from the Greek capital, and New York from Milan, Italy.
The Dubai-based carrier currently operates Athens with 12 weekly flights operated by a Boeing 777-300ER. These additional codeshare routes will be subject to receiving government approvals.
