Emirates to increase flights between Dubai and the United States
Emirates announced that by October 2021, it will restore its US flights to nearly 80% of pre-COVID-19 levels, and to more than 90% by December 2021.
The airline’s decision to increase its US services, which was announced on September 20, 2021, was made in response to growing demand as travel confidence returns along with the United States easing its restrictions on vaccinated travelers from Europe and the UK.
Expo 2020 Dubai, which was originally scheduled for October 2020 to April 2021, will now finally be held from October 2021 to March 2022, and has garnered a lot of interest from the US market.
Starting from October, Emirates will be ramping up US flights to 78 weekly services across 12 destinations to meet increased demand, offering more connectivity from @DXB to @BostonLogan, @DFWAirport, @JFKairport, @flySFO, @flySEA and @Dulles_Airport. https://t.co/JD7u71xz73 pic.twitter.com/kW3E6CixhJ— Emirates Airline (@emirates) September 20, 2021
