Middle Eastern airline Emirates, based in Dubai, has signed an interline agreement with local private operator Cemair that opens up connections to six more destinations in South Africa.

This is the first partnership between the two airlines and Emirates' fourth airline partnership in South Africa. The arrangement includes offering single ticket itineraries with onwards booking and baggage transfers from Johannesburg and Cape Town to Bloemfontein, Kimberley, Margate, Durban, Hoedspruit, Plettenberg Bay, George and Sishen.

Emirates also has interline and codeshare partnerships with South African Airways, Airlink and Flysafair to drive more connectivity options.

The airline boosted its South African operations earlier this month and is presently operating 14 flights a week into South Africa via Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

Emirates currently flies to more than 120 destinations globally.
