Emirates Expands in South Africa with FlySafair Deal
Emirates and FlySafair have entered into 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 operations into Johannesburg and Cape Town on 1 October, and Durban on 8 October, and is presently operating 17 flights a week into South Africa.
Emirates has put enhanced safety measures in place across all of its onboard and on ground touchpoints.
The airline continues to stimulate passenger demand through connecting customers via Dubai from close to 100 destinations, as well as building more connection opportunities in South Africa through partnerships like the one with FlySafair.
