Emirates has announced that it will launch a four-times weekly service between Florida’s second-largest city, Miami, and Dubai, beginning July 22, 2021, expanding its U.S. network to 12 destinations.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive said: “Launching a non-stop service to Miami at this time signals our confidence in travel recovery as countries progress on their vaccination programmes and implement protocols for the safe resumption of flight and travel activity, particularly in the US and the UAE. It also underscores our strong commitment to the U.S. market, which Emirates now serves with over 70 weekly flights across 12 gateways.
The new service will also add to the existing trade connections provided by Emirates SkyCargo, which has been operating scheduled cargo flights to Miami since October 2020. The cargo carrier has been offering cargo capacity into and out of Miami facilitating exports of perishables, electronics and other components as well as e-commerce goods. Emirates SkyCargo has also in the past operated several charter flights on its Boeing 777 full freighter aircraft to transport champion horses from Miami to equestrian events around the world.
