Emirates has expanded its codeshare agreement with “United” significantly to now encompass nine destinations in Mexico. Along with Mexico City, where Emirates already flies, consumers will now have access to eight additional locations nationwide.
A number of US locations are currently included in the vast codeshare network between Emirates and United, and Mexico is the first nation outside of the US to be added to the developing network.
The codeshare partnership enables customers to enjoy flexibility and choice with smooth connections, allowing passengers flying on Emirates to two points in the US, either Chicago or Houston, to connect onwards to exciting leisure destinations in Mexico. The new Mexican points include Cancun, Cozumel, Monterrey, Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara, San Jose Del Cabo, Leon/Guanajuato, and Queretaro.
Additionally, the codeshare agreement offers more flexibility with regard to flight schedules, providing Emirates customers flying to Mexico City a wider range of route alternatives. Depending on their travel intentions, customers can choose between booking separate codeshare flights to Mexico City or using Emirates’ daily services from Dubai with a stop in Barcelona. Customers travelling from the nine sites in Mexico may now access destinations on the airline’s network via Chicago or Houston thanks to the extension of the codeshare network.
With the addition of the new points to Mexico, the enhanced codeshare network now includes 134 destinations, accessible from United’s gateways in the US, while almost 100 additional points across the US, Canada, Central and South America, and the Caribbean are available for customers to choose from on an interline basis.
Emirates offers daily services to Houston, onboard its flagship A380 aircraft. Emirates recently introduced its latest offering, Premium Economy, to its services to Houston. The world’s largest international airline also operates seven weekly flights between Dubai and Chicago, utilising its other widebody aircraft – the Boeing 777 – enabling passengers to plan their travel itineraries to global destinations, with seamless connectivity.
Travellers with itineraries on Emirates’ flights can plan their entire trip on a single-ticket and take advantage of hassle-free flight benefits including the airline’s baggage allowance, in addition to convenient bag check-through to the final destination.
Furthermore, members of Emirates’ frequent flyer programme, Emirates Skywards, can look forward to earning and redeeming miles on flights of both airlines, if booked on codeshare flights.
Baggage check-through is valid for travel out of Mexico. International travellers flying to destinations in Mexico on Emirates and United codeshare flights must clear their baggage with US Customs at the first point of entry (Chicago or Houston).
