Great news for our friends in Latin America looking for adventure and new destinations as Emirates announces a new codeshare partnership agreement with LATAM Airlines Brazil covering domestic services in Brazil, providing greater choice and connectivity to its customers. This makes it easier to not only to fly internally but to connect to International destinations, such as Dubai and from there 150 places worldwide, including two flights a day to Nairobi, Kenya and one daily flight to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, where the Elewana Collection has 16 boutique lodges, camps and hotels offering unique accommodations in iconic locations.

Emirates passengers travelling to and from Brazil will now be able to connect with 17 cities in LATAM’s domestic network covered by the codeshare agreement including Belo Horizonte, Brasília and Foz do Iguaçu (more details below). Passengers travelling to/from these cities will now be able to connect seamlessly in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro with Emirates’ flights to its Dubai hub, which serves a multitude of destinations worldwide. The agreement will also offer Emirates passengers more choice to travel to/from Brazil with minimum connection times to destinations, such as  Africa.

Emirates connects its passengers to more than 150 destinations, in 85 countries, across six continents. In all classes passengers can take advantage of the ice, the multi-award-winning in-flight entertainment system with over 4,000 channels featuring movies, TV shows, music and podcasts. The onboard experience is complete with complimentary Wi-Fi to stay in touch with family and friends as well as regional-inspired meals prepared by international chefs.

Emirates currently serves two Brazil gateways with daily services to Dubai from Sao Paulo, operated by the A380, and Rio de Janeiro, operated by the newly-refurbished Boeing 777-200LR as of June 1, 2019. Passengers can also fly to Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile (from June 1, 2019) onboard the Boeing 777-200LR from Rio de Janeiro.

Passengers flying with Emirates can book a Dubai Stopover package which will allow them to stay in Dubai for a few days on their way to one of over 155 destinations. Visiting Dubai is now much easier as Brazilians don’t need to get a visa before departing to the United Arab Emirates – it is issued immediately upon arrival, free of charge, for up to 90 days.
