Emirates continues to stretch its connectivity across the globe with partnerships with smaller airlines in Europe and Asia, the latest of which will see a codeshare and interline agreement with Indonesia’s Batik Air.
The Emirates code will be placed on Batik Air flights to eight destinations: Balikpapan, Denpasar, Medan, Manado, Padang, Surakarta, Surabaya and Makassar.
Earlier this year, Batik Air merged with its sister airline Malindo Air to form Batik Air Malaysia. Both carriers are members of the Lion Air Group, serving Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia.
Emirates also has a partnership with Garuda Indonesia, linking eight domestic destinations out of Jakarta and Denpasar.
In August, Emirates announced that it would place its code on Aegean Airlines-operated flights to destinations in Greece, including Kerkyra, Chania, Irakleion, Mikonos, Thira, Rhodes, Thessaloniki and Alexandropoulos.
Emirates has also signed a codeshare agreement with airBaltic to offer customers connectivity to/from Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and Finland.
