Emirates and United expand partnership to include Mexico flights

Emirates customers will now have access to eight new destinations in addition to Mexico City

Emirates has announced a significant expansion in its codeshare partnership with United, to include nine destinations in Mexico. 

The expansive codeshare network between the airlines currently includes a host of US cities, with Mexico becoming the first country outside the US to be added.

The codeshare partnership also provides more flexibility on flight timings, giving Emirates customers flying to Mexico City more options when choosing flights. Depending on travel plans, passengers can opt to fly to the Mexican capital using Emirates daily services from Dubai with a stop in Barcelona, or separately book codeshare flights to Mexico City.

The expansion of the codeshare network also enables customers flying from the nine points in Mexico to fly to destinations on the airline’s network, via Chicago or Houston. 

The enhanced codeshare network now includes 134 destinations, accessible from United’s gateways in the US, while almost 100 additional points across the US, Canada, Central and South America and the Caribbean are available for customers to choose from on an interline basis.   

Travellers with itineraries on Emirates flights can plan their entire trip on a single-ticket and take advantage of flight benefits including the airline’s baggage allowance, in addition to bag check-through to the final destination.


Members of Emirates’ frequent flyer programme, Emirates Skywards, can earn and redeem miles on flights of both airlines, if booked on codeshare flights.

Tickets to codeshare destinations in Mexico are available for travel starting on 14 September.
