With the addition of Miami to its expanding US network, with a four-weekly flight service starting July 22, Emirates will now have more than 70 weekly flights to the US, offering over 26,000 seats across 12 destinations, including Boston, Chicago, NYC (JFK and Newark), Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Houston, Dallas, and Orlando.
According to Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive, His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum: “Launching a non-stop service to Miami at this time signals our confidence in travel recovery as countries progress on their vaccination programs and implement protocols for the safe resumption of flight and travel activity, particularly in the US and the UAE…
“There is a clear demand for this service from both leisure and business travelers, and we anticipate that our new route will be warmly received across our global network, as well as by travelers in Southern Florida, South America, and the Caribbean who can conveniently access Dubai and our wider network via Miami’s many air service connections. We look forward to facilitating even more tourism and commerce opportunities to and from Florida with this new route, and to providing our customers with the award-winning Emirates experience.”
Flights to/from Miami will operate on the airline’s three-class Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight private suites in First, 42 lie-flat seats in Business, and 304 spacious seats in Economy. Flight EK213 will depart Dubai (DXB) at 3:10 am, arriving in Miami (MIA) at 11 am, while the return flight EK214 will depart Miami at 9:10 pm, arriving in Dubai at 7:35 pm the next day.
Customers across all classes can also enjoy more than 4,500 channels on the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system, along with regionally inspired gourmet meals.
“I am thrilled that Emirates will be bringing its award-winning service to Miami-Dade County, and will be connecting our community to the popular global destination of Dubai for the first time in our history,” commented Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “I greatly look forward to welcoming their four weekly flights and the enormous economic impact they are expected to bring to our County.”
