Emirates is adding another codeshare partner to its network, with Aegean Airlines of Greece.
The codeshare will allow passengers to benefit from increased connectivity to eight domestic Greek points via Athens, using a single ticket.
Emirates will place its code on Agean-operated flights, providing customers with a convenient and seamless booking experience as well as one consistent baggage policy, to Kerkyra, Chania, Irakleion, Mikonos, Thira, Rhodes, Thessaloniki and Alexandropoulos.
Under the codeshare agreement, Ageanwill also place its code on Emirates-operated flights between Dubai and Athens for their customers to benefit from smooth connections to Dubai and onward.
Further expansion ahead
There will be further expansion of the partnership in October 2022 with Emirates and Agean Airways will be adding a further 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.
Emirates currently serves Athens with 12 weekly flights operated by a Boeing 777, whilst Aegean does not compete with them on the routes.
It’s going to provide useful connectivity options for those who need to traverse Athenes with a single ticket and baggage checked through.
