Emirates and partner airline flydubai have announced that flydubai will take over flights between Dubai and Zagreb from December 2, 2018 to March 30, 2019, after which flights will be taken over again by Emirates.This will make the best possible use of the existing capacity in order to meet the demand for flights on the mentioned route during the winter months by increasing the frequencies. The move further illustrates the many benefits of a strategic partnership between the two Dubai-based airlines.During this period, FZ 1793 will depart from Dubai at 10.00 am and land in Zagreb at 13.15 local time. The return flight FZ 1794 will depart from Zagreb at 14.30 pm and land in Dubai at 23.00 pm local time.Flydubai will fly on this route with a new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft that offers passengers an advanced travel experience, including business-class horizontal seats, modern economy-class seats, an in-flight entertainment system on HD screens and Boeing’s innovative Sky Interior system inside the aircraft.Emirates and flydubai will continue to offer passengers a travel experience in line with the values of both brands, so flydubai flights to Zagreb will run and arrive at Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport (DBX), providing seamless connectivity with other flights at the modern Emirates Hub in Dubai. Namely, both airlines offer passengers numerous travel opportunities as part of their complementary network of destinations, which currently, thanks to the codeshare agreement, has 90 destinations, with several new ones that will be available soon. The Codeshare partnership started with flights to 29 destinations and expanded very quickly to meet the demand of passengers who saw all the benefits of cooperation, such as increasing frequencies, expanded availability of flights with only one ticket within the world network, compliance with loyalty programs, baggage check-in. destinations, unhindered transfers during transit in Dubai and others.Passengers will receive free meals and the permitted amount of checked baggage on all flights booked as part of the codeshare, as is the case on Emirates flights, both in economy and business class. So far, more than 794.000 passengers have taken full advantage of the partnership between Emirates and flydubai that began on October 29, 2017.
