Emirates and Korean Air, respectively the second and eighth most profitable among 150 airlines worldwide*, have notched another significant partnership with the signing of a codeshare agreement on the Dubai-Seoul passenger route.

Both airlines will book passengers under its own code and flight number, deploying their own sales channels, including agents and global distribution systems.

Richard Vaughan, Senior Vice President Commercial Operations East Asia and Australasia said: 'The new codeshare agreement with Korean Air exemplifies Emirates' philosophy of forging strategic partnerships on key routes. It paves the way to offer our passengers, wanting to travel to South Korea, with greater choice and flexibility.

'Emirates' non-stop Dubai-Seoul service, which was launched in May this year, has proved extremely popular, with above-average seat loads that have exceeded our expectations. We are very pleased with this codeshare agreement and are confident that the Emirates-Korean partnership will be extremely successful in the coming months.'

Jong Hee Lee, President and COO of Korean Air said: 'We are delighted to partner with Emirates on the Seoul-Dubai route. Tourism, travel and trade are on the upswing between the two countries and the codeshare agreement will increase our frequency spread on the route to 10 weekly flights. Both Korean Air and Emirates look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.'
