A new service to Miami set to launch from Emirates...

The Dubai based Emirates has confirmed today that it will soon operate a direct service from its home base to the Floridian hotspot of Miami.

The new route will operate four times each week from 22nd July and marks the 12th U.S. destination for the carrier. Emirates will then serve the US with over 70 weekly flights, offering over 26,000 seats across 12 gateways including Boston, Chicago, New York (both JFK and Newark), Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC and Orlando.

The City of Miami has long been the gateway for southern Florida and is perhaps the cultural mecca for the state. Famous for its hedonistic nightlife, art, music, architecture and not to mention cuisine, the City of Miami has become one of the nations most exciting vacation 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 US market which Emirates now serves with over 70 weekly flights across 12 gateways.

There is a clear demand for this service from both leisure and business travellers and we anticipate that our new route will be warmly received across our global network, as well as by travellers in Southern Florida, South America and the Caribbean who can conveniently access Dubai and our wider network via Miami’s many air service connections. We look forward to facilitating even more tourism and commerce opportunities to and from Florida with this new route, and to providing our customers with the award-winning Emirates experience.”

Flights to/from Miami will operate four times weekly on Emirates’ three-class Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 spacious seats in Economy Class. Emirates flight EK213 will depart Dubai (DXB) at 03:10hrs, arriving in Miami (MIA) at 11:00hrs while the return flight EK214 will depart Miami at 21:10 hrs, arriving in Dubai at 19:35 hrs the next day.

The airline is not a stranger to Miami,  it has been operating scheduled cargo flights to the city since October of last year and prior to that, there have been a number of special charter operations. Often those special SkyCargo flights on its Boeing 777 full freighter's were to transport champion horses from Miami to equestrian events around the world.

“I am thrilled that Emirates will be bringing its award-winning service to Miami-Dade County, and will be connecting our community to the popular global destination of Dubai for the first time in our history,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “I greatly look forward to welcoming their four weekly flights and the enormous economic impact they are expected to bring to our County.”

“Emirates announcing first-ever Dubai service at MIA is clearly one of the proudest moments in our airport’s history,” said Lester Sola, MIA Director and CEO. “Adding Dubai to our growing list of top destinations around the world further solidifies MIA as a leading global gateway and Florida’s busiest airport for international passengers.”
