KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 29 2016 : Malaysia Airlines customers will be able to purchase their codeshare flights on Emirates beginning today.
Enrich members will be able to earn 25 per cent bonus miles on any MH4500-MH4999 codeshare flights operated by Emirates between Feb 22 and April 19, 2016 in conjunction with the launch of the partnership, Malaysia Airlines said in a statement yesterday.
The airline marked the start of its codeshare agreement with Emirates last week, with both carriers placing its codes on the Kuala Lumpur-Dubai route, as well as other routes under the codeshare agreement.
The service to Dubai will be operated three times a day on a Boeing 777 and once a day on an Airbus A380.
The agreement, which was announced in early December 2015, is one of Malaysia Airlines’ largest codeshare agreements and opens up a host of new destinations for customers.
For Malaysia Airlines’ customers, this will include over 30 South American and European destinations, including Rome, Paris, Zurich, Geneva, Stockholm, Madrid and Barcelona, which will be introduced progressively over the next few weeks as regulatory approvals are obtained, the airline said.
“The Malaysia Airlines and Emirates codeshare is an integral part of our future network plan as we focus on getting our customers connected globally.
“We are pleased to launch the collaboration and we are confident that our customers will benefit from this agreement,” Malaysia Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer Paul Simmons said.
Meanwhile, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Thierry Antinori said the codeshare agreement in place with Malaysia Airlines will provide more options for travellers and seamless connections onwards to 39 European destinations.
“At the same time, the agreement will offer travellers from across Emirates’ global network convenient access into Malaysia and to a number of destinations within Malaysia Airlines’ extensive Asia Pacific network,” Antinori said. – Bernama
