  • EK214 will depart Miami at 21:10 and arrive in Dubai at 19:35 the next day.

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.”

With the new route to Miami, Emirates now has over 70 weekly flights servicing 12 destinations in the US, including Boston, Chicago, New York (JFK and Newark), Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, and Orlando.

Miami will add a second destination in Florida. Emirates’ route to Orlando was on hold during the pandemic but resumed in June. These flights also operate four times a week, using a 777-200LR aircraft.

The US expansion goes alongside a wider growth in services and capacity for the UAE based carried. Emirates hopes to return the A380 to 18 cities this summer. Overall, the airline plans to return its global capacity to 70% of pre-pandemic levels by winter.

This will be the first route of Emirates to Miami and will be the first to connect the city directly to Dubai.
