Dubai carrier Emirates is increasing flight frequencies to a number of destinations across the US from next month.

Starting from October, Emirates will be operating 78 weekly flights to 12 destinations in the United States, with an increase in weekly flights scheduled for Boston (BOS), Dallas (DFW), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA) and Washington DC (IAD) as follows:

Boston: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
Dallas: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week

San Francisco: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
Seattle: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week
Washington DC: five weekly flights, increasing from four flights a week

Emirates’ A380 aircraft featuring the onboard lounge and shower spa will be flying to the US 24 times a week (12 flights to JFK, 7 flights to LAX and 5 flights to IAD) from October. By early December, Emirates will have restored more than 90 per cent of its pre-Covid flight frequencies to the US, with daily flights added to Boston, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC in addition to double daily flights to New York.

Customers from the US will also have more opportunities to fly on the airline’s Airbus A380 aircraft from November with 35 weekly flights. Emirates’ flights between Milan and New York will also be upgraded to the A380 from October 31, resulting in New York being served three times a day by the aircraft. In addition to Los Angeles, New York and Washington DC, the Airbus A380 will return daily to San Francisco from December 2021.

Through its codeshare agreement with JetBlue, Emirates customers can enjoy connectivity to over 63 destinations in the US and more than 100 destinations through its interline agreement with Alaska Airlines.

Emirates has launched an exclusive offer for customers to experience the Expo 2020 event with a free Expo Day Pass for every flight ticket booked from October 1, 2021 until March 31, 2022. Emirates’ customers travelling in first and business class can also enjoy complimentary chauffeur drive services to and from the airport at all Emirates’ destinations in the US and in Dubai in addition to over 70 cities worldwide.

The ramp up of flights to the US will also provide increased connectivity for Emirates’ cargo customers. Since January 2020, Emirates SkyCargo has transported more than 250,000 tonnes of cargo to and from the US.

Emirates has also been scaling up its flights to destinations across regions. In the Americas, the airline will be operating daily flights to Sao Paulo from October and is increasing flights to Mexico City via Barcelona to five times a week. It has also enhanced its operations to European and African destinations including 25 flights a week to Cairo and 28 weekly flights to South Africa.
