Online Booking: Connections with Other Airlines

There are 7 FAQs for Online Booking: Connections with Other Airlines

What destinations can I book using emirates.com?

Along with destinations served by Emirates, through our extensive airline partnerships emirates.com now allows you to book flights to more than 500 other cities as well, with more being added all the time.

You can see all our current onward destinations through our online booking system: just search for a city, or enter the name of a country to see all onward destinations in that country.

Use the ‘multiple destinations’ option to create complex itineraries involving multiple destinations served by Emirates and our partner airlines.

Why should I book my connecting flights with Emirates?

Booking your whole journey – including onward flights – with Emirates allows you to arrange your travel on a single ticket, and check your baggage through to your final destination.

Emirates has links with dozens of airlines around the world, allowing us to serve more than 500 onward destinations.

Will I have to collect my baggage at each airport?

In most cases, no: with an onward booking through emirates.com, your baggage is checked in at the start of your journey all the way through to your final destination.

There are some exceptions to this, such as taking a connecting flight from a different airport, or countries which require you to collect your baggage for security or customs purposes. Please check with your local Emirates office before you travel to confirm specific procedures.

What happens if I miss my connection?

By booking your whole itinerary on one ticket you ensure that, in most cases, your onward travel will be guaranteed – meaning that if you miss your connection through no fault of your own, you will be rebooked on the next available flight.

Please check the specific terms and conditions of your ticket or contact your local Emirates office for more information.

What classes of travel can I make my onward booking in?

emirates.com allows you to make online onward bookings in all classes of travel.

Can I choose which airlines to use?

Yes: during the booking process, you can select which of Emirates partner airlines to search for flights. The booking system will also inform you which airline is scheduled to operate a particular flight on codeshare routes.

You can confirm your operating airlines by contacting your local Emirates office before you travel. Please note that this information is subject to change without notice.

Why can’t I book a particular itinerary?

Emirates currently has links with dozens of airlines, covering more than 500 destinations worldwide. Currently these destinations cover other cities in countries where Emirates currently flies, and will be expanded to cover more cities and countries over time.

Because there are so many different combinations of flights, the emirates.com booking system may occasionally be unable to create itineraries for all possible combinations. If you can’t book your desired itinerary, please contact your local Emirates sales office for assistance.
