DUBAI, UAE, 22 June 2021: Emirates resumes services to seven
cities during July as it ramps up operations across its network to meet strong
leisure travel demand over the summer.
The airline rolls out a service to Venice on 1 July; Phuket, Nice, Orlando and Mexico City on 2 July; Lyon on 9 July and Malta on 14 July. It will also launch flights to Florida’s second-largest city Miami, starting 22 July.
Today, Emirates serves 115 global passenger destinations,
and by the end of July, it will have recovered close to 90% of its pre-pandemic
network, operating 880 weekly services across 124 cities.
“Emirates is committed to keeping Dubai, businesses and
communities around the world connected, and we are working hard to rebuild our
network and secure access to more destinations in partnership with various
authorities and stakeholders. We are encouraged by the latest developments as
many countries have begun to turn the page and reopen for international visitors,
and we see strong signs of pent-up demand wherever restrictions have eased.
Emirates is nimbly matching up flight services and identifying opportunities to
grow our footprint and provide customers more opportunities to safely get where
they want to go this summer, offering best-in-class service, greater
convenience and more choice,” said Emirates chairman and chief executive
Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum.
Across its network, the airline will boost capacity and
expand its schedules by layering on frequencies for the summer. It will add
frequencies to 12 cities across Europe, Africa, and North America as more
