Emirates is ramping up their operations and expanding services across their network, as entry restrictions ease for travellers. The airline has been gradually and safely rebuilding their route network and advancing their strategy to optimise their presence in key markets; to serve leisure and growing business travel demand, as well as segments of travellers visiting friends and relatives.
Resume Services to 7 cities in July
Currently Emirates serves 115 global passenger destinations and by the end of July they will have recovered close to 90% of their pre-pandemic network, operating 880 weekly services across 124 cities.
The airline will resume services to seven cities in July including:
Venice on 1st July
Phuket, Nice, Orlando and Mexico City on 2nd July
Lyon on 9th July
Malta on 14th July
Miami on 22nd July (new service)
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive said: "Emirates is committed to keeping Dubai, businesses and communities around the world connected and we are working hard to rebuild our network and secure access to more destinations, in partnership with various authorities and stakeholders. We are encouraged by the latest developments as many countries have begun to turn the page and reopen for international visitors, and we are seeing strong signs of pent-up demand wherever restrictions have eased".
An expanded A380 summer network
Emirates will boost their A380 network this summer, bringing their flagship experience to 15 cities on 129 weekly services. During the summer, the airline plans to activate over 30 of their A380s.
Emirates will be deploying the A380 to the following cities during the summer period: Cairo, Jeddah, Amman, Guangzhou, London Heathrow, Manchester, Frankfurt, Vienna, Paris, Munich, Moscow, New York JFK, Los Angeles, Washington DC and Toronto.
Stepping up of deployment of the A380 demonstrates the importance of the aircraft to Emirates' recovery and growth strategy. The A380 ensures the efficient use of capacity on high-demand routes and will help the airline to maintain their leadership position in key cities across their network.
In the United States, with rapid vaccine rollouts and the reopening of air travel at a rate outpacing the world, Emirates will continue to build their presence.
With the addition of Miami to their network in July, Emirates will operate over 70 weekly flights to the US; 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 airline is also ramping up their trans-Atlantic operations, Milan-New York and Athens-Newark, to meet large passenger volumes.
