Emirates and Philippine Airlines announce interline partnership


Emirates and Philippine Airlines have signed an interline agreement to enhance connectivity for passengers of both air carriers to new routes on each other’s networks via Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL)  and Dubai International Airport (DXB), using a single ticket and one baggage policy.

Emirates said that the partnership will provide its passengers access to 19 Philippine domestic destinations operated by Philippine Airlines, including Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Bacolod, Cotabato, Davao, Iloilo, Kalibo and more, as well as two Asian regional points via MNL airport.

Philippine Airlines’ passengers will also gain access to Emirates’ global network and connect to 21 cities operated by Emirates beyond Dubai to European destinations such as London, Rome, Frankfurt, Barcelona and Paris. 

“The Philippines is one of our strongest consumer markets and we’re pleased to sign a new interline agreement with the country’s flag carrier,” Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ chief commercial officer said in a statement

“The partnership with Philippine Airlines will help open new links for trade and tourism that will drive more inbound traffic into the market, and expand Emirates’ footprint in East Asia,” Kazim further said. 

Emirates first started operations in Manila in 1990, and has since expanded its network to include Cebu and Clark. The airline currently operates 25 weekly flights to the Philippines using its fleet of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a mix of three-class and two-class configuration.

The interline partnership is currently in effect, and can be booked on emirates.com, philippineairlines.com, the Emirates and PAL mobile apps, or via both online and offline travel agents.
