Aegean Airlines and Emirates announced a collaboration on Wednesday that will allow their passengers to fly to eight destinations in Greece on a single ticket.
Emirates will connect its passengers with Alexandroupoli, Corfu, Iraklio, Mykonos, Santorini, and Thessaloniki, while Aegean will expand its network to international destinations through Dubai and Athens, including New York and Newark airports in the United States.
Passengers will be able to book flights through either airline (at emirates.com and aegeanair.com), or through travel agents.
The two airlines said that as of October 2022 they will expand their joint network, adding eight more European destinations on flights from Athens - including Belgrade, Bucharest, and Napoli - as well as adding to Emirates' Athens-Newark and Milan-New York/JFK.
Currently, Emirates has 12 weekly flights to and from Athens on a Boeing 777.
Aegean has a network of 138 destinations (29 domestic and 109 abroad) in 44 countries, as well as a fleet of 64 planes, including the Airbus A320 and A321 neo.
The agreement for a joint flight code are subject to approval by the relevant regulatory authorities.
