Emirates has today announced that it will be boosting its US service in the coming weeks. Emirates suspended operations in the spring of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the airline has progressively been building back its network ever since.
With this latest announcement, Emirates still isn’t back to offering pre-pandemic capacity to the US, but it’s still good to see flights being added back. Qatar Airways has in many ways taken advantage of Emirates’ absence in recent months, as the airline has launched flights to two new US destinations — San Francisco and Seattle. The airline is almost offering pre-pandemic levels of US service.
Emirates expanding service in the United States
Emirates will be resuming service to three US destinations, meaning the airline will once again offer service to nine North American destinations. On top of that, the airline will be increasing frequencies to two US destinations.
As it stands, Emirates is offering service to the following six destinations in the United States, all with 777-300ERs (with the exception of Houston, which is operated by a 777-200LR):
- Dubai to Boston 4x weekly
- Dubai to Chicago 5x weekly
- Dubai to Houston 3x weekly
- Dubai to Los Angeles 5x weekly
- Dubai to New York JFK 7x weekly
- Dubai to Washington Dulles 4x weekly
