Emirates, United agree to add 200 new destinations

Emirates and United announced a historic commercial partnership that will expand the reach of both airlines’ networks and make it simpler for passengers to travel to hundreds of new destinations worldwide.

From November, Emirates customers flying into Chicago, San Francisco, and Houston can easily connect to United flights to and from nearly 200 cities across the Americas on a single ticket.

Both airlines will have an interline arrangement in place at the eight other airports in the United States that Emirates services. These airports are Boston, Dallas, LA, Miami, JFK, Orlando, Seattle, and Washington, DC.

Beginning in March 2023, United will begin service on a new direct trip between New York/Newark and Dubai. Once passengers arrive in Dubai, they can continue their journeys on Emirates or its sister airline, flydubai, to more than 100 other cities.

Tickets for the brand new flight between United and Dubai are now available.

Customers of both airlines will be able to book these connecting flights on a single ticket, making check-in and the transfer of luggage quicker and simpler.

This agreement will also give the loyalty program members of both airlines more opportunities for more rewards.

Eligible customers traveling on codeshare flights will soon enjoy access to Emirates and United lounges. More details on frequent flyer awards and lounge-sharing benefits will be communicated in the coming weeks. BKM/ Expat Media
