Emirates launches service to Dallas
Dallas, February 3, 2012
Dubai-based Emirates, one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, launched its new service from Dallas/Fort Worth to Dubai yesterday.
It is the fifth gateway for Emirates in the US, and the fourth new route to join the airline's international network in 2012.
Emirates will serve Dallas/Fort Worth daily with a Boeing 777 aircraft with private suites in First Class, lie-flat beds in Business Class and generously-sized Economy Class seats.
EK221 leaves Dubai daily at 0245hrs, arriving at Dallas/Fort Worth at 0905hrs. The return sector, EK222, leaves Dallas/Fort Worth at 1150hrs, arriving at Dubai International Airport at 1220hrs the following day.
"Emirates' newest U.S. destination is a thriving and dynamic metroplex, which is home to one of the highest concentrations of Fortune 500 companies in the country," said Nigel Page, senior vice president, commercial operations, Americas. "A direct link with Dubai will open new vistas for North Texas, with key trading and business centers in the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent now just one stop away." - TradeArabia News Service
