Emirates and SNCF, France’s national railway company, have announced a new codeshare partnership which will allow Emirates passengers from around the world to travel to 19 new destinations in France.
With just one ticket, travellers will be able to fly on Emirates and travel France using high speed trains that leave directly from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.
“This codeshare agreement with SNCF opens up new possibilities for our passengers and complements our current services to Paris, Lyon and Nice,” commented Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ executive vice president and chief commercial officer.
“With TGV Air, travelling to the Far East from Bordeaux, or to Strasbourg from Dubai has never been easier.”
Customers are now able to book trips with travel dates from 8 June and onwards to these 19 new destinations via Emirates’ website. First Class and Business Class passengers will automatically be booked in First Class on board SNCF’s TGV trains.
