Dubai’s Emirates will launch a four times weekly service between Miami and Dubai, from July 22, 2021, it announced on June 3.

Flights to/from Miami will operate on Emirates’ three-class Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy Class. Emirates flight EK213 will depart Dubai (DXB) at 3.10am, arriving in Miami (MIA) at 11am, while the return flight EK214 will depart Miami at 9.10pm, arriving in Dubai at 7.35pm the next day.

With the new service, the carrier will expand its US network to 12 destinations. The new service will provide Emirates’ global travellers with another access point into Florida after Orlando (effective July), serving the Southern Florida area, a statement said.

With the addition of Miami, Emirates will now serve the US with over 70 weekly flights, offering over 26,000 seats across 12 gateways including Boston, Chicago, New York (JFK and Newark), Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC and Orlando.

The new service will add to the existing trade connections provided by Emirates SkyCargo

The new service will also add to the existing trade connections provided by Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, which has been operating scheduled cargo flights to Miami since October 2020.

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.”

“I am thrilled that Emirates will be bringing its 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.”

Earlier this week, Emirates confirmed that it would resume four weekly services to the island of Phuket from July 2, 2021.
