Emirates Airline has formed a new codeshare alliance with LATAM Airlines.
Emirates Airline passengers travelling to and from Brazil can now connect with 17 cities in LATAM’s domestic network that fall under the new codeshare agreement, including Belo Horizonte, Brasília and Foz do Iguaçu. Those travelling to or from these cities can now connect seamlessly in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro with Emirates Airline’s flights to its Dubai hub, which serves over 150 destinations worldwide.
Divisional senior vice president, strategic planning, revenue optimisation and aeropolitical affairs, Emirates Airline, Adnan Kazim remarked on the development: “We’re pleased to establish a partnership with LATAM Airlines Brazil, providing our passengers with increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to different cities within Brazil. We continuously invest in providing more benefits to our customers. With our award-winning product and strong partners in Brazil, we look forward to continue supporting the country’s growing inbound tourist numbers and business trade opportunities.”
The Dubai-based carrier currently serves two Brazil gateways. It offers daily services to Dubai from Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Passengers will also be able to fly to Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile (from June 1, 2019) onboard the Boeing 777-200LR from Rio de Janeiro.
