Dubai’s Emirates partners with Cemair in interline agreement

Cemair has become Emirates’ fourth airline partner in South Africa


Dubai carrier Emirates has signed an interline agreement with Cemair to open up connections to six more destinations in South Africa through the airline’s gateways of Johannesburg and Cape Town.

The partnership also includes a few leisure points exclusively served by Cemair.

This marks the first partnership between both airlines, and Emirates’ fourth airline partnership in South Africa.

The arrangement between Emirates and Cemair includes the convenience of single ticket itineraries with onwards booking and baggage transfers from Johannesburg and Cape Town to Bloemfontein, Kimberley, Margate, Durban, Hoedspruit, Plettenberg Bay, George and Sishen.

Customers can book their travel on, via its sales offices and travel agencies.

Emirates boosted its operations to and from South Africa earlier this month, and is presently operating 14 flights a week into South Africa via its gateways – Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. The airline has been expanding its footprint across South and Southern Africa through its interline and codeshare partnerships with South African Airways, Airlink, Cemair and Flysafair, a statement said.
