There are 83 destinations currently available under the Emirates-Flydubai codeshare, and that’s set to reach 240 by 2022.

That’s an impressive collaboration when you consider that, when asked two years ago whether his Emirates airline and discount specialist Flydubai would join forces, Tim Clark gave a withering look.

If ordered to do so by his bosses in Dubai then he would, Clark said, while making it abundantly clear that the process would be a painful one.

Fast forward to the present day and the airlines are not just sister companies but partners – sharing more routes, schedules and costs than ever before. But the last two years have been turbulent ones.

Oil prices plunged in 2016, disastrous for Middle East travel.

Meanwhile, the dollar strengthened and competition has become stiffer, with China seeking to gatecrash the market and carriers such as Ethiopian Airlines Group on the rise.
