Emirates and Flybe

Exeter-based Flybe is to introduce a codeshare with Emirates allowing regional customers to bypass Heathrow and make the use of the Gulf airlines, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester gateways.

The new agreement will see Emirates’ code added to 25 Flybe routes across the UK (subject to regulatory approval), adding a total of 13 new destinations to the Emirates global network, connecting customers to and from Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey and Newquay.  All Flybe flights will seamlessly connect with Emirates services to Dubai and beyond.  Emirates and Flybe are currently targeting a July launch for the new codeshare.
Thierry Antinori, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Emirates, said: "Our new codeshare agreement with Flybe will provide our passengers with increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to different cities within the UK to and from Dubai, ultimately offering a smoother, more convenient travel experience.
“Emirates already offers 16 daily services from the UK to Dubai with another daily service flying from Birmingham from the beginning of August. Together with Flybe, we are taking more people to more places and opening up new UK destinations to people around the world. It’s an important partnership as we continue to expand the destinations available to Emirates' passengers.” www.flybe.com   www.emirates.com
