Emirates and Gulf Air launch codeshare partnership

Dubai-based carrier Emirates and Bahrain’s Gulf Air have signed a unilateral codeshare partnership, starting this December, subject to government approvals.

The expanded partnership will see Gulf Air place their marketing code ‘GF’ on Emirates operated flights beyond Dubai to a selection of tourism hotspots. Travellers will be able to connect to points including Budapest, Prague, Warsaw, Algeria, Tunis, Bali, Hanoi, HoChi Minh City, Taipei and Sao Paulo.

Emirates said that the new partnership will also offer customers “the convenience of combined ticketing and check-in, a unified policy and seamless transfers for baggage, and competitive single fares on a multi-airline journey when connecting on Emirates.”

Customers can book their travel on Gulf Air’s website, through its point of sales and online travel agencies as well as with local travel agents.

“We are pleased to partner with Gulf Air to offer their customers greater access and strong connection opportunities to unique destinations on our network, complemented by Emirates’ signature in-flight service and hospitality throughout their journey from Dubai. We look forward to working together and achieving more with Gulf Air in the near future, and further strengthening our relationship,” said Sir Tim Clark, president Emirates Airline.

“Our relationship with Emirates Airline has always been strong and today we are reaching a higher level of collaboration with many more opportunities in the horizon between the two carriers,” added Captain Waleed Al Alawi, Gulf Air chief executive officer.

Emirates currently has codeshare cooperation agreements with 26 airline partners and two rail companies globally, expanding its network reach to over 300 cities.
