UAE’s flag carrier Emirates has announced a new codeshare partnership with Greek airline company AEGEAN to increase its connectivity to eight new Greek cities via Athens.

The partnership will benefit Emirates customers to access domestic Greek points using a single ticket.

Emirates said that the new partnership would be effective from October.

In a statement, Emirates said: “Starting October 2022, Emirates and AEGEAN will further increase the 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.”

Currently, Emirates operates 12 weekly flights to Athens.

The implementation of the new codeshare routes announced is subject to receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals.

As part of this partnership, UAE’s flag carrier will place its code on AEGEAN-operated flights to allow its customers to book their tickets to popular destinations in Greece such as  Chania, Irakleion, Kerkyra, Thira, Rhodes, Mikonos, Thessaloniki and Alexandroupolis.

AEGEAN will also place its code on Emirates-operated flights between Dubai and Athens to enable its customers to benefit from smooth connections.

With this partnership, Emirates aims to offer its customers global connectivity across six continents.

In March, Emirates signed a codeshare agreement with Garuda Indonesia to offer better connectivity to passengers.

With this partnership, customers of both airlines stand to benefit from connectivity on 16 routes across the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
