Emirates and Etihad Airways have signed an MoU to expand upon their interline agreement to improve connectivity for passengers.
The pair see a significant ability to boost tourism in the sector and see visitors from around the world visit the UAE and experience what it offers. As such, the interline agreement will mean that those visiting can not just see one location but also visit multiple destinations, lapping up the whole experience in a single trip.
We are pleased to be working again with Etihad Airways – this time to allow each carrier to offer a new range of seamless travel options in and out of the UAE. Emirates and Etihad are leveraging on our strengths to expand our respective customer offerings and boost UAE tourism. We believe this new agreement provides a strong foundation to develop further opportunities between both airlines and is an example of our commitment to the UAE’s vision for continued economic diversification.Sir Tim Clark, President, Emirates Airline
Select points in Europe and China will be targeted initially for this interline agreement focusing on getting visitors from these locations.
Whether it’s Dubai, Abu Dhabi or any other location, they want passengers to save time and have more freedom at departure and arrival ports.
We’re delighted to partner with Emirates in our shared mission to support inbound tourism to the UAE and facilitate travel to our vibrant cities. With two world-class airlines supporting UAE tourism, our interline agreement will make it more convenient for our guests to experience the best of Abu Dhabi and Dubai on one single ticket while promising to deliver an exceptional flying experience whether they fly with Etihad Airways or Emirates. It’s a win-win proposition for travellers to the UAE.Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Airways
