Emirates, Etihad Airways sign expanded interline agreement


Emirates Airline and Etihad Airways have announced an expanded interline agreement that will provide travelers with additional itinerary options when visiting the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The new agreement, which will take effect this summer, will allow customers of both airlines to purchase a single ticket to fly into either Dubai or Abu Dhabi, with a seamless return via the other airport.

The expanded interline agreement is part of a broader effort by Emirates and Etihad to boost tourism to the UAE. The expanded interline agreement will make it easier for travelers to explore the UAE, and will help to attract even more visitors to the country.

“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,” said Sir Tim Clark, President, Emirates Airline.

“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 travelers to the UAE,” said Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Airways.

Under the terms of the agreement, travelers will be able to purchase a single ticket for travel into either Dubai or Abu Dhabi. They will also be able to check in for both flights at the same time, and their baggage will be checked through to their final destination.

The expanded interline agreement is a win-win for both airlines and for the UAE. The airlines will benefit from increased traffic, and the UAE will benefit from increased tourism revenue. The expanded interline agreement is a further sign of the strong relationship between Emirates and Etihad, and it is a testament to the commitment of both airlines to supporting the UAE economy.

Emirates and Etihad are committed to working together to make the UAE a more attractive destination for travelers from around the world. The expanded interline agreement is a significant step forward in this effort, and it is a testament to the strong relationship between the two airlines.

This is the second time the airlines have worked together, following a 2018 agreement to strengthen aviation security. In 2022, Emirates also signed an MoU with the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, to boost tourist numbers to the UAE capital.
