During the Arabian Travel Market, Etihad Airways and Emirates entered into a memorandum of understanding to enhance their interline agreement. This will provide travelers visiting the country with the option to arrive at one emirate and depart from another, without incurring additional airfare charges.
The concept underlying the agreement is to provide tourists with the chance to explore a wider range of attractions during their visit to the UAE, while also saving time by avoiding the need to return through the same airport they arrived at. This affords travelers greater flexibility in scheduling their flights.
Why it matters
In 2018, the two airlines entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance aviation security within and beyond the Emirates. By establishing an interline agreement between these two top-notch airlines, it will become easier for travelers to explore both Abu Dhabi and Dubai on a single ticket, while ensuring an exceptional flying experience, regardless of whether they choose to fly with Etihad Airways or Emirates. This arrangement benefits tourists visiting the UAE, creating a win-win situation for all.
