June 3. In a bold move that timed to co-inside with anticipated summer surge in international passenger traffic, Emirates announced today it will launch a four times weekly service between Florida’s second largest city, Miami, and Dubai, starting on July 22nd 2021. The Miami leg concludes the aggressive development strategy of the airline to 12 major US destinations.
The new service will provide Emirates’ global travelers with a second key access point in Florida, following its successful route to Orlando. The new route is expected to offer convenient connections to travelers headed to the Middle East, West Asia, and Indian Ocean vacation destinations via Dubai.
With the addition of Miami, Emirates will now serve the US with over 70 weekly flights, offering over 26,000 seats across 12 gateways including Boston, Chicago, New York (JFK and Newark), Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC and Orlando.
Emirates has safely and gradually restarted operations across its network. Since it safely resumed tourism activity in July, Dubai remains one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, especially during the winter season. The city is open for international business and leisure visitors. It was one of the world’s first cities to obtain Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) – which endorses Dubai’s comprehensive and effective measures to ensure guest health and safety.
