DUBAI, 27 September 2021: Emirates will restore US services to nearly 80% of pre-Covid levels by October and to more than 90% by December.
The airline has been building up connectivity in response to growing customer demand on the back of rising travel confidence and the easing of international travel protocols. There has also been a growing interest from US travellers to visit Dubai, a city that offers something for everyone and will be hosting a number of major events, including the World Expo this winter.
Starting from October, Emirates will offer 78 weekly flights to 12 destinations in the US 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:

Emirates’ flagship A380 aircraft featuring the signature onboard lounge and shower spa will be flying to the US 24 times a week (12 flights to JFK, seven flights to LAX and five flights to IAD) from October.
By early December, Emirates will have restored more than 90% of its pre-Covid flights 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.
