Travelling to more destinations across India from Dubai has just got a whole lot easier as passengers can now book one single ticket, instead of booking two separate tickets, to destinations that do not have direct flight links from Dubai.
Dubai based Emirates has signed a codeshare and interline agreement with India based SpiceJet to give travellers to and from India seamless access to a wider route network.
From early 2020, customers travelling to India can take advantage of flight options on routes common to both airlines, inlcuding Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Cochin and Delhi. Emirates’ customers can conveniently book and connect seamlessly in Dubai on direct services to Amritsar, Calicut, Mangalore, Madurai, Jaipur and Pune, the routes served by SpiceJet.
The codeshare agreement means travellers from across the globe can book a single ticket to any of Emirates’ nine destinations across India and connect onwards to 172 domestic routes that are part of SpiceJet’s network. SpiceJet’s domestic network includes popular destinations like Goa, Dehradun, Dharamshala, Jaisalmer, Jammu, Srinagar, Leh, Guwahati, Pondicherry, Port Blair, Shirdi, Tirupati, Udaipur and Varanasi.
In this first phase of the interline agreement, customers can start booking flights from now for journeys planned from 15 December 2019.
