On top of its codesharing expansion with Greek carrier Aegean, Emirates has expanded its codesharing arrangement with United Airlines to include destinations in Mexico.
Under this new deal, it will include nine destinations in Mexico that are operated under the United Airlines umbrella, being the following via Chicago or Houston:
- Puerto Vallarta
- San Jose Del Cabo
Emirates & United Expand Codeshare: Mexico Next on the List…
In their press statement, this is what Emirates had to say on the expansion of its codesharing arrangements with United Airlines in Mexico:
“The newly-expanded network of Mexican destinations now available to Emirates customers is expected to be popular amongst customers from the Middle East, India and South Africa, to name a few.”
“The most frequented destinations for global travellers embarking from points in Mexico include India, Israel, UAE, South Africa and select points in South East Asia.”
“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”.
Looking ahead, this is a big step in the Emirates-United codeshare, which when originally launch, was already very large.
Onward connection into Mexico is clearly a priority for Emirates, and they stand to benefit from any additional revenues made from this deal in the region.
It is all to play for.
