Aegean Airlines and Emirates Launch Code Sharing Deal

Greece's flagship carrier Aegean Airlines has announced a new code sharing partnership with Dubai-based Emirates, offering more flights from this October.

Aegean Airlines said on Wednesday it had struck a so-called code sharing agreement with Emirates, allowing both companies to offer more destinations to their passengers.

Emirates passengers will be able to travel to eight destinations in Greece via Athens, while the agreement will allow Aegean to expand its international network via Dubai.


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.

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 Naples – as well as adding to Emirates’ Athens-Newark and Milan-New York/JFK.

Aegean, a member of the Star Alliance airlines group, currently flies to 138 destinations at home and abroad with a fleet of 64 aircraft, including new Airbus A320 and A321 neo jets.
