Emirates has announced a new codeshare partnership agreement with LATAM Airlines Brazil covering domestic services in Brazil, providing greater choice and connectivity to its customers. Passengers flying with Emirates can book a Dubai Stopover package which will allow them to stay in Dubai for a few days on their way to one of over 155 destinations.
Visiting Dubai is now much easier as Brazilians don’t need to get a visa before departing to the UAE – it is issued immediately upon arrival, free of charge, for up to 90 days.
Emirates passengers travelling to and from Brazil will now be able to connect with 17 cities in LATAM’s domestic network covered by the codeshare agreement including Belo Horizonte, Brasília and Foz do Iguaçu. Passengers travelling to/from these cities will now be able to connect seamlessly in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro with Emirates’ flights to its Dubai hub, which serves over 150 destinations worldwide.
The agreement will offer Emirates passengers more choice to travel to/from Brazil with minimum connection times to destinations in Emirates’ global network such as Japan, Australia and India amongst others.
Emirates currently serves two Brazil gateways with daily services to Dubai from São Paulo, operated by the A380, and Rio de Janeiro, operated by the newly-refurbished Boeing 777-200LR as of June 1. Passengers can also fly to Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile (from June 1) onboard the Boeing 777-200LR from Rio de Janeiro.
