Dubai’s Emirates, TAP Air Portugal expand codeshare partnership

Emirates will place its code on TAP Air Portugal-operated flights to 19 additional destinations via Lisbon

Dubai carrier Emirates and TAP Air Portugal are further expanding their existing codeshare arrangement by adding 23 more destinations from November 2.

This brings the total number of destinations where customers can enjoy connectivity to over 90 points.

TAP Air Portugal will place its code on Emirates flights to four additional Asian destinations – Hanoi and three Japanese gateways – Narita, Osaka and Haneda, subject to government approval.

Meanwhile, Emirates will place its code on TAP Air Portugal operated flights to 19 additional destinations via Lisbon. They include Belem, Brasilia, Belo Horizonte, Fortaleza, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Maceio, Natal, Porto Alegre, Recife, Salvador, Praia, Sal Island, Sao Vicente, Conakry, Ponta Delgada, Porto Santo, Terceira and Dakar.

Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer, Emirates Airline, said: “The further expansion of the Emirates – TAP Air Portugal partnership attests to the strong collaboration of both airlines and our shared commitment to provide customers with seamless connections to and from Portugal. By leveraging our mutual networks through codeshare flights, we enable our customers to travel to more places on a single ticket with a one baggage policy and fare conditions.”

“TAP Air Portugal is pleased to be able to implement this expanded partnership with Emirates, allowing our customers greater geographic access, with particular emphasis on destinations in the Middle East and Asia,” added Silvia Mosquera, chief commercial and revenue officer, TAP Air Portugal. “TAP is eager to be able to take Emirates customers to more cities in Portugal and to our destinations in the Americas and North Africa, aboard our modern fleet of aircraft, in an environment of maximum quality of service, hygiene and safety, and so that they can also benefit from our Portugal Stopover programme.”

In March, Emirates and TAP Air Portugal had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to expand the codeshare partnership currently in place between both airlines.
