Emirates launches new route to Washington D.C. from Dubai

  • Emirates added the US capital to its network on 12 September when the airline took on United on the Dubai (DXB) to Washington Dulles, VA (IAD) route. Washington D.C. thereby becomes Emirates’ seventh US destination. Emirates will operate the 11,375-kilometre route on a daily basis with 266-seat 777-200LR aircraft, competing with United’s also daily flights. Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline, commented: “As one of the most important global cities in the world, we look forward to connecting DC-area travellers with the largest number of one-stop flights to Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.” Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ SVP Commercial Operations Americas, added: “The Americas is a strategically important market for Emirates, a fact underpinned by our recent period of significant growth.”
