Its been almost ten months since Emirates was forced to ground its global network as the UAE government sought to deal with the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Since the airline was allowed to resume services, it has slowly added routes where demand exists. In the summer, it hopes to operate its full pre-crisis network, albeit with a reduced frequency.

Resuming United States flights

As part of its route resumptions, Emirates today revealed that the United States would soon benefit from far more flights. According to the carrier, it is set to add three destinations to its current schedule. First up will be Seattle, with non-stop services resuming on February 1st. The airline will fly to the west coast city four times weekly using a Boeing 777-300ER. Later this month, rival Qatar is set to launch its own Seattle flights.
