Emirates Partners with United To Incorporate 9 New Destinations in Mexico


Emirates customers will now have access to nine additional Mexican destinations as a result of a substantial increase in the UAE flag carrier's codeshare cooperation with American airline United. The strategy seeks to provide consumers with seamless connections by letting travelers traveling on Emirates to either Chicago or Houston connect onward to leisure locations in Mexico.  

The two businesses' codeshare arrangement presently encompasses numerous US locations, and Mexico is the first country outside of the US to be added to the developing network. Cancun, Cozumel, Monterrey, and Puerto Vallarta are among the new Mexican destinations. Guadalajara, San Jose Del Cabo, Leon/Guanajuato, and Queretaro are also among them.

The codeshare relationship also allows for greater flexibility in flight times, offering Emirates customers traveling to Mexico City additional alternatives when booking tickets. The additional Mexico points raise the total number of destinations inside the improved codeshare network to 134, all of which are accessible from United's US gateways. Customers can pick from over another 100 other interline sites in the United States, Canada, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.

Emirates announced plans in August to launch five weekly flights from Dubai to London beginning in October. The additional route to London Heathrow will commence on October 31 and will operate until March 30, 2024. The change is intended to fulfill strong demand during the winter season and give passengers with "increased travel options," according to the airline at the time.
