Emirates’ inaugural flight departed this morning (Thursday) from Dubai International Airport to Miami, inaugurating the airline’s first passenger service to this famous coastal metropolis, its second stop in Florida and Emirates’ first new destination since the outbreak of the pandemic. Emirates flight EK213 took off at 03:10 UAE time.
With the new service to Miami, operating at a rate of four flights per week, the Emirates network in the United States will serve 12 destinations with more than 10 flights per day. The airline currently flies to the United States at more than 60% of its pre-pandemic capacity, and continues to expand its presence in line with the accelerating pace of passenger traffic growth.
The new service to Miami is a gateway to many destinations in Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean islands. Passengers in those areas can also use the Emirates network, which currently covers more than 120 destinations.
The plane will be led on its flight to Miami today by Captain Abdullah Al Hammadi and Captain Stewart Clay Jr., and its two aides, First Officer John Brosnan and First Officer Carlos Montero Corral.
In addition to the launch of the new Miami service, Emirates Airlines will resume flights to Nice (France), Mexico City, Phuket (Thailand), Lyon (France), Mauritius and Malta since early July.
The Miami service will be operated with Emirates Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in three classes: 8 private suites in the former, 42 seats that convert to a semi-flat bed in business class and 304 comfortable seats in economy. But Emirates used one of the “Boeing 777 Gamechanger” planes for today’s flight, which contains fully enclosed private First Class suites.
