Connecting to and from flydubai with an Emirates ticket
If you have purchased a ticket with Emirates and part of your journey is with flydubai, here is some important information you need to know.
About your booking
As your booking is with Emirates, you will need to contact Emirates to make any amendments to your travel plans. Please call your local Emirates office.
Whether you’re checking in with Emirates or flydubai, you need to hold a valid Emirates eticket and all other valid travel documents.
Emirates baggage allowances and charges (where applicable) will apply for the full journey (including if the first sector is on flydubai) Emirates Skywards Platinum, Gold and Silver allowances do not apply on flydubai sectors.
When you check in, your baggage will be tagged for your final destination – that means you won’t have to collect it in Dubai.
For Emirates originating flights, you will receive your onward boarding pass at check-in. If you originate on a flydubai flight, you may have to check in for the onward flight, and collect your boarding pass, at the Emirates transfer desk in Dubai. In these cases, you will have to identify your baggage to airport staff so it can be associated with the Emirates boarding pass.
