Emirates Interline Baggage Agreements
Emirates and FlySafair will be interline to give Emirates customers more access to flights in South Africa. The agreement allows Emirates customers to acquire a single itinerary with both airlines, which also comes with baggage identification. I will answer my question – Yes, provided they have an interline agreement and show the ticket of the other legs. This is valid for Melbourne, you need to ask your local Emirates office for your area. Less than a month ago, Emirates announced a new interline agreement with Airlink, another regional airline in South Africa. Airlink has a bit more connectivity than FlySafair in South Africa and beyond. If your itinerary includes flights operated by other airlines, these flights may be subject to other baggage rules – more information. If your journey begins with another airline that is connected to an Emirates flight, please contact that airline for instructions regarding the passenger baggage task. An interline agreement is a relationship between airlines that allows an airline to sell services provided by another airline to a customer.
Airlines use interline agreements to sell routes that they would otherwise not be able to serve on their own. Depending on the purchase of their tickets and the availability of systems at the airport, passengers travelling with Emirates and changing with another may or may not have their baggage dropped off for their flights. Please inquire at your on-site Emirates office. “We are pleased to announce today the launch of our interline agreement with Emirates Airline,” said Kirby Gordon, Chief Marketing Officer of FlySafair. Emirates and Airlink offer customers heading from Johannesburg and Cape Town to inland points such as Bloemfontein, George, Upington, Nelspruit, Hoedspruit and Port Elizabeth, as well as points in Southern Africa such as Gaborone, Kasane, Vilanculos, Maun, Victoria Falls, Maputo, Windhoek, Harare, Lusaka, Ndola, Bulawayo and Livingstone, among others, single travel with a single intermediate journey for luggage, as well as luggage with a single stopover.
