Emirates begins Dubai-Miami flights

The new four-times-a-week service to Miami takes Emirates’ US network to 12 destinations 

Dubai-based Emirates Airline has officially launched its Miami service. Flights will operate on the carrier’s Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight private suites in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in business class and 304 seats in economy class.

The new four-times-a-week service takes Emirates’ US network to 12 destinations with more than 10 flights a day. As well as Miami, Emirates also flies to Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York (JFK and Newark), Orlando, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC.

The airline said in a statement that it has reinstated more than 60% of its pre-pandemic capacity to the US. The new service to Miami will also serve as a gateway to Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. In August last year, Emirates dropped its four-times-a-week service to Fort Lauderdale, which is also in South Florida, about 40km north of Miami.

When the route was announced earlier this month, Emirates chairman and chief executive Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum: “There is a clear demand for this service from both leisure and business travellers and we anticipate that our new route will be warmly received across our global network, as well as by travellers in Southern Florida, South America and the Caribbean, who can conveniently access Dubai and our wider network via Miami’s many air service connections.”
