In a move to support the ramp up of operations to South Africa, Emirates has signed an interline agreement with Cemair that opens up connections to six more destinations in South Africa through the airline’s gateways of Johannesburg and Cape Town. It also includes two leisure destinations served exclusively by the South African company.
