United Airlines and Emirates will sell seats on each other’s planes, marking a turnaround in the business models of the one-time foes.

As part of the deal, United said it will start flights to Emirates’ hub in Dubai from Newark Liberty International Airport next March.

The codeshare agreement, which the CEOs announced Wednesday, will give the airlines access to the other carrier’s destinations and is the latest example of thawing in the relationship between U.S. and Gulf airlines, particularly as international air travel rebounds from more than two years of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The partnership, if approved by regulators, will also allow passengers to earn and burn frequent their flyer miles on each carrier.

Qatar Airways and American Airlines in June said they would expand their codeshare partnership.
