Emirates Signs Codeshare Agreement with Trenitalia

Emirates has signed a codeshare agreement with Trenitalia, Italy’s national railway company, which will enable Emirates’ customers from across its worldwide network to more easily discover new destinations across Italy.

With just one ticket, travellers will be able to fly on Emirates and reach some of Italy’s most picturesque cities and towns using high speed trains that leave from Emirates’ four Italian gateways - Bologna, Milan, Rome and Venice.

“This codeshare agreement with Trenitalia opens up new possibilities for our customers and complements our current services to Bologna, Milan, Rome and Venice. With Trenitalia, travelling to the Far East from Foggia, or to Padova from Sydney has never been easier,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, West. “Emirates already flies more than 1.6 million passengers to and from Italy every year. With this codeshare agreement, we’re connecting Italian regions to our global network, significantly boosting the Italian tourism industry.”

Emirates customers will be able to board Trenitalia trains directly without the need to exchange their boarding pass for a separate ticket. As with their flight, they will be assigned a seat number and car number which will be on their e-ticket.

Trenitalia tickets will be booked in the cabin class that matches the class of travel on the Emirates ticket. Depending on the type of train, these cabin classes on Trenitalia range from Executive, Business, Premium and Standard.

 Passengers travelling in Emirates First Class and Trenitalia Executive Class will also be able to access, where available, the lounges of each partner by presenting their boarding passes.

Emirates’ baggage allowance will also apply for train journeys, as well as baggage dimension restrictions. Customers will however need to collect their checked bags from the arrival hall at the airport and take them to the train station.

Emirates currently operates eight daily flights to four Italian gateways: Bologna, Milan, Rome and Venice.
