Emirates is boosting its United States network out of its Dubai hub, with the relaunch of three routes and boosting of three other destinations.
The airline will relaunch Seattle, Dallas-Fort Worth and San Francisco.
Planned operation is as follows:
- Seattle – 1st February, – four times weekly with an Emirates Boeing 777-200LR
- Dallas-Fort Worth – 2nd March – three times weekly with an Emirates Boeing 777-200LR
- San Francisco – 2nd March, four times weekly with an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER
The Boeing 777-200LR routes will operate as a two-class service, with 38 business class lie-flat seats, and 264 Economy Seats.
The addition of these three destinations will take Emirates’ North American network to 10 destinations following the resumption of services to Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York JFK, Toronto and Washington DC.
Network Frequency Increases
There will also be major boosts across the US and South America Networks, with additional flights to New York, Los Angeles and São Paulo.
- New York will go double daily from 1st February
- Los Angeles to go daily from 1st February
- São Paulo will increase to five flights a week from 5th February
US-Bound passengers will be able to continue their journeys onwards with Jetblue and Alaskan Airlines thanks to the interline agreement, whilst South America passengers can l via the airline’s codeshare partnership with GOL and its interline agreements with Azul and LATAM.
Emirates has gradually restarted operations across its network and currently serves 114 destinations on six continents.
Confidence to grow
It seems Emirates has the confidence to grow out its network, with demand returning for travellers. Whilst some markets are suppressed, it seems that the US market is still ripe for the passenger to travel from or to.
It’ll be interesting to see where else the airline can grow in the USA.
