Emirates and China Southern sign MoU
Emirates and China Southern Airlines have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop a codeshare agreement that is set to open up new destinations for passengers travelling between China and the Middle East and Africa.
The partnership allows Emirates passengers connectivity on domestic flights within China, adding eight new destinations to its global network. The Chinese cities covered by the codeshare agreement are Fuzhou, Chongqing, Kunming, Qingdao, Xiamen, Chengdu, Nanjing and Xi’an.
Similarly, passengers travelling from China will enjoy minimum connection times when flying to destinations in Emirates’ Middle East network such as Riyadh, Jeddah, Dammam, Muscat, Kuwait and Cairo.
The codeshare also includes flights operated by Emirates to African destinations such as Seychelles and Lagos.
Passengers will benefit from purchasing connecting flights using one reservation, with ticketing, check-in, boarding and baggage check for the entire journey.
