Since the beginning of the year, we’ve seen Emirates announce the resumption of services between Dubai and various US cities that saw their non-stop ties to Dubai cut when the pandemic first took hold. Now the airline tells us that it’s ready to go one step further by launching a completely new route to the US – to Miami.

Emirates’ New Miami Route

Emirates says that it will launch a service between Dubai and Miami on 22 July 2021 and has confirmed that the route will operate 4x/week. As things stand, this is the schedule that Emirates says will operate:

EK213 DXB 03:10 – 11:00 MIA (Mon, Thu, Fri & Sun)
EK214 MIA 21:10 – 19:35+1 day DXB (Mon, Thu, Fri & Sun)

The new route to Miami will be operated by an Emirates 777-300ER which comes in a 3-cabin layout and this particular aircraft will offer 8 First Class seats, 42 Business Class seats, and over 300 seats in Economy Class.

If you’re a fan of Emirates First Class this will be good news, but with the aircraft offering a sub-par 2-3-2 layout in Business Class (which may not even offer true lie-flat seating)…

….this will be far from the most comfortable aircraft on which to travel in Business Class between Miami and the Middle East – the Qatar Airlines Qsuite will definitely be the way to go.

Emirates Will Have 12 US Airports By This Summer

By the end of 2020 Emirates was back to serving 6 US cities and so far in 2021, the airline has brought back its route to Seattle (from 1 February), its route to Dallas Ft Worth (from 2 March), its route to San Francisco (from 2 March), its route to Newark via Athens (from 1 June), and its route to JFK via Milan (from 1 June). The airline was also supposed to be restarting its route to Orlando from 2 June but that has been pushed back to 2 July.

Once the Miami route is up and running, however, Emirates will be back to serving 12 US Airports in total:

  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • New York (JFK)
  • New York (Newark)
  • Houston
  • Dallas Ft Worth
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • Orlando
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • Washington DC

Interestingly, Emirates also served Ft Lauderdale until the pandemic closed down that route, and the airline has since confirmed that it has no plans to return to its original south Florida gateway. The addition of Miami to the Emirates network would seem to suggest that nothing has occurred to change the airline’s mind.

Bottom Line

Emirates has confirmed that it will be launching a non-stop service between Dubai and Miami from 22 July and that it will be operating its new route with a 3-cabin Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. If you’re based in Miami and a fan of Emirates First Class this will be welcome news. If you’re based in Miami and are happy traveling in Business Class you’ll find that Qatar Airways offers a considerably better product to the Middle East.
