Dubai: Emirates airline and FlySafair have announced an interline agreement, opening up connections for customers to selected routes on FlySafair’s network in South Africa.
Through the arrangement, Emirates and FlySafair plan to offer the ease of single-ticket travel and through tagging of baggage for travellers transferring from Emirates’ three gateways – Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban to FlySafair domestic points in South Africa, such as Port Elizabeth, East London and George.
Customers can also take advantage of connecting to FlySafair’s points, without backtracking to their initial destination when catching their flight back to Dubai. Customers can book their travel with EK offices and travel agencies.
Emirates resumed its operations into Johannesburg and Cape Town on 1 October, and Durban on 8 October, and are presently operating 17 flights a week into South Africa.
Emirates now operates 10 weekly flights to and from Dhaka and offers via Dubai convenient connections to nearly 100 destinations worldwide including South African cities.
