Emirates’ strategic programme


The first direct connection between the Middle East and the US northwest has taken off with the launch of daily Emirates flights between Dubai International Airport and Seattle- Tacoma International Airport using a B777-300ER equipment. The airline
now operates B777 services to each of its six US destinations: New York JFK, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and Seattle.

“This new service is the latest step in Emirates’ strategic programme of expansion across the United States, and we are confident that it will support the burgeoning trade relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the Seattle metropolitan region,” said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and
CEO of Emirates.
