Emirates Airline and Azul Linhas Aereas announced a codeshare agreement this Wednesday, which will go into effect on August 25th
The partnership will allow passengers from both airlines to use the Emirates international network from Guarulhos Airport, in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Dubai-based airline customers will be able to use Azul connecting flights to eight destinations in Brazil: Rio de Janeiro (Santos Dumont), Belem, Belo Horizonte (Confins), Cuiaba, Curtiba, Juazeiro Do Norte, Porto Alegre and Recife .
Tickets can be purchased this Wednesday at both companies.
“Emirates is delighted to be entering a codeshare partnership with Azul to offer our customers an enhanced, smooth and convenient connectivity between eight cities in Brazil to/ from Dubai and our global network through Sao Paulo. Brazil is an important market for Emirates and our cooperation with Blue underscores Emirates’ commitment to strengthen our reach in the region and open up more options for our customers,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer.
“We are very happy to announce this partnership with Emirates, which will provide seamless benefits to our customers. As the largest airline in Brazil in terms of destinations, this codeshare allows our customers to have unparalleled connectivity in Brazil and around the world,” says Abhi Shah, Azul’s Chief Revenue Officer.
Emirates currently operates five weekly flights between Sao Paulo and Dubai with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Even before the pandemic, however, the carrier uses the Airbus A380 on a daily flight, in addition to having operated a second non-stop flight, which was also going to Santiago de Chile.
