Emirates has inked a new codeshare deal with Italy’s national railway company, Trenitalia, which will enable the Gulf carrier’s customers to discover new destinations across the European country.

With just one easy-to-book ticket, travellers will be able to fly on Emirates and reach some of Italy’s most picturesque cities and towns using high speed, modern and comfortable trains that leave from Emirates’ four Italian gateways: Bologna, Milan, Rome and Venice. Through the partnership, passengers 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 appear on their e-ticket.

“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,” Frach added.

Director of Trenitalia Long Haul Passenger Division Gianpiero Strisciuglio said the agreement is a “pivotal step towards the increase and comfortable integration between train and aeroplane.”

“Our customers will now be able to buy one single solution for their train and flight journey, departing and arriving from 27 Italian stations and enjoying the comforts and the best commercial facilities offered by Trenitalia and Emirates,” he added.

Trenitalia tickets will be booked in the cabin class matching the class of travel on the Emirates ticket. Depending on the type of train, Trenitalia’s cabin classes include 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 allowances and dimension restrictions will also be applied on rail travel .

These are the train stations included as part of the Emirates -Trenitalia partnership:
