Emirates has announced a new codeshare partnership agreement with LATAM Airlines Brazil covering domestic services in Brazil, providing greater choice and connectivity to its customers.
Emirates passengers travelling to and from Brazil will now be able to connect with 17 cities in LATAM’s domestic network covered by the codeshare agreement including Belo Horizonte, Brasília and Foz do Iguaçu. Passengers travelling to/from these cities will now be able to connect seamlessly in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro with Emirates’ flights to its Dubai hub, which serves over 150 destinations worldwide.
The agreement will offer Emirates passengers more choice to travel to/from Brazil with minimum connection times to destinations in Emirates’ global network such as Japan, Australia and India amongst others.
“We’re pleased to establish a partnership with LATAM Airlines Brazil providing our passengers with increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to different cities within Brazil. We continuously invest in providing more benefits to our customers. With our award-winning product and strong partners in Brazil, we look forward to continue supporting the country’s growing inbound tourist numbers and business trade opportunities,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning, Revenue Optimization and Aeropolitical Affairs.
Emirates connects its passengers to more than 150 destinations, in 85 countries, across six continents. In all classes passengers can take advantage of the ice, the multi-award-winning in-flight entertainment system with over 4,000 channels featuring movies, TV shows, music and podcasts. The onboard experience is complete with complimentary Wi-Fi to stay in touch with family and friends as well as regional-inspired meals prepared by international chefs.
Emirates currently serves two Brazil gateways with daily services to Dubai from Sao Paulo, operated by the A380, and Rio de Janeiro, operated by the newly-refurbished Boeing 777-200LR as of June 1, 2019. Passengers can also fly to Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile (from June 1, 2019) onboard the Boeing 777-200LR from Rio de Janeiro.
Passengers flying with Emirates can book a Dubai Stopover package which will allow them to stay in Dubai for a few days on their way to one of over 155 destinations. Visiting Dubai is now much easier as Brazilians don’t need to get a visa before departing to the United Arab Emirates – it is issued immediately upon arrival, free of charge, for up to 90 days. The family-friendly destination offers year-round sunshine, world-class shopping and restaurants, stunning beaches and attractions and iconic buildings.
