Emirates and United Airlines sign codeshare pact to expand reach

Starting November, Emirates customers will be able to connect to United flights to and from nearly 200 cities in the US on a single ticket

Dubai’s Emirates and US carrier United Airlines have signed a codeshare agreement to enhance their network amid a resurgence of air travel.

Starting in November, Emirates customers flying into Chicago, San Francisco and Houston – three of the biggest business hubs in the US – will be able to connect to United flights to and from nearly 200 cities across the US on a single ticket.

At the eight other US airports served by Emirates – Boston, Dallas, LA, Miami, JFK, Orlando, Seattle and Washington DC – the two airlines will have an interline arrangement.

Additionally, United will launch a new direct flight between Newark and Dubai starting March 2023, allowing customers to travel on Emirates or its sister airline flydubai to more than 100 cities. 

Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates, said the partnership would unlock tremendous consumer benefits and bring the UAE and the US closer.

Moreover, customers of both airlines can soon book these connecting flights on a single ticket, which will make check-in and luggage transfer more efficient.
