Emirates and South African low-cost carrier FlySafair have signed an interline agreement, opening up connections for customers to selected routes on FlySafair’s domestic network.

The arrangement means passengers can enjoy single-ticket travel and through-tagging of baggage for transfers from Emirates’ three gateways – Johannesburg, Cape Town,and Durban – to FlySafair destinations in South Africa including Port Elizabeth, East London and George.

Passengers can also take advantage of connecting to FlySafair’s points without backtracking to their initial destination when catching their flight back to Dubai. Bookings can be made with Emirates offices and travel agencies.

Emirates resumed operations from Dubai to Johannesburg and Cape Town on October 1 and to Durban on October 8 and is currently flying to South Africa 17 times weekly.
