Emirates is increasing flight frequencies to a number of US destinations from next month.
Emirates has been building up connectivity in response to growing passenger demand on the back of rising travel confidence and the easing of international travel protocols.
The airline says there is also growing interest from US travellers to visit Dubai, which will be hosting a number of major events including the World Expo this winter.
Starting from October, Emirates will be operating 78 weekly flights to 12 destinations in the US with an increase in weekly flights scheduled for Boston (BOS), Dallas (DFW), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA) and Washington DC (IAD) as follows:
- Boston: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
- Dallas: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
- New York: 19 weekly flights, increasing from 18 flights a week (including flights connecting Milan and New York)
- San Francisco: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
- Seattle: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
- Washington DC: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
Emirates has already restored pre-COVID-19 daily flight frequencies to Chicago, Los Angeles and on the routes connecting Athens-Newark and Milan-New York.
Emirates’ flagship A380 with its Onboard Lounge and Shower Spa will be flying to the US 24 times a week (12 flights to JFK, 7 flights to LAX and 5 flights to IAD) from October.
Emirates is also planning to further supplement its capacity for the winter season and by early December, it will have restored more than 90 per cent of its pre-COVID flight frequencies to the US with daily flights added to Boston, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC in addition to double daily flights to New York.
In addition to Los Angeles, New York and Washington DC, the Airbus A380 will return daily to San Francisco from December 2021.
