Dubai-based carrier Emirates has indefinitely suspended flights to nine US destinations starting Wednesday, January 19.

The nine destinations are: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (IAH), Miami (MIA), Newark (EWR), Orlando (MCO), San Francisco (SFO) and Seattle (SEA).

It said that customers holding tickets with the final destination to any of the above will not be accepted at the point of origin.

However, Emirates flights to New York JFK, Los Angeles (LAX) and Washington DC (IAD) will continue to operate as scheduled.

In a statement posted on its website, the carrier said that suspension was “due to operational concerns associated with the planned deployment of 5G mobile network services in the US at certain airports.”

“We are working closely with aircraft manufacturers and the relevant authorities to alleviate operational concerns, and we hope to resume our US services as soon as possible,” it added.

Emirates flights to New York JFK, Los Angeles (LAX) and Washington DC (IAD) continue to operate as scheduled.

The airline said that affected customers do not need to contact the airline immediately for rebooking. They can hold on to their Emirates ticket and when flights resume, can connect with the airline to make new travel plans.
