Both airlines intend to establish a codeshare relationship later this year. Air Canada customers can soon travel to the United Arab Emirates and destinations beyond Dubai with this codeshare arrangement. And Emirates customers will enjoy an enhanced travel experience when flying to Toronto or key destinations across Air Canada’s network. Booking of connecting travel between both airlines’ networks will be possible with the ease of a single ticket, seamless connectivity at the carriers’ respective global hubs and baggage transfers to their final destinations.
Both airlines will extend reciprocal frequent flyer benefits and reciprocal lounge access for qualifying customers. More details of the partnership with specific codeshare routes will be announced when finalised and will be subject to regulatory approvals and final documentation.
