On May 1, Emirates inaugurated daily, nonstop service from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Dubai’s new Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport.
Emirates is now flying nonstop to Dubai
from SFO to LAX.
“We have been very successful with our new West Coast routes in the past four to six months,” explains Nigel Page, Emirates senior vice president, commercial operations, Africa and the Americas. “With the new daily services, Emirates is now better able to meet the demand of West Coast travelers visiting Dubai.”
Daily flights out of LAX and SFO will depart both cities at 4:45 p.m., arriving the following day in Dubai at 7:40 p.m. and 7:20 p.m., respectively.
West Coast passengers will take the long-haul flight aboard one of the line’s Boeing 777-200LR, outfitted with eight first-class, private suites, 42 lie-flat beds in business class and generous space for 216 passengers in economy class. Passengers in all classes will have more than 1,700 hours of video and audio entertainment to keep them occupied during the approximately 16-hour flight.
Emirates is promoting the new service by awarding qualifying passengers with complimentary accommodations at the world’s tallest tower, The Address Downtown Burj Dubai and a coupon booklet with free entry to the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo and Dubai Ice Rink.
