America’s capital city will soon have enhanced non-stop flights to the Gulf area when Emirates introduces flights from Dubai to Washington Dulles International Airport from 12 September 2012. The carrier will compete with the well established and revitalised United Airlines operation. Flight time is around 13 hours.
Emirates will operate a Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft on its DC route, providing eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat beds in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy Class.
“As Emirates seventh US gateway and our third new American route to launch in 2012, Washington, DC is a significant next step as we continue to expand our services across the country,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline & Group. “This new route will provide further impetus to the vibrant trade relationship between the United Arab Emirates and the United States, boosting exports and imports and increasing opportunities for business, industry and tourism.” www.emirates.com
