Dubai-based Emirates has recently announced its plans to start flights to Boston from 10th March 2014. It will be a non-stop service, providing a seamless connectivity to those seeking air tickets on the route.
This is the airline’s 8th route into the USA and the 9th into North America. The carrier already offers tickets on flights to Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington Dulles.
These USA bound flights will be operated by Boeing 777-200LR, as per the company’s press release. Fliers booking tickets for the service will soon be able to enjoy the hospitality of one of the most highly decorated carriers in the world.
“Our Boston service will further develop this exciting gateway into the north-eastern United States. Based on passenger demand, we believe the time is right to further boost our U.S operations, while stimulating channels of trade and tourism to and from the state of Massachusetts and the wider New England region,” His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group said.
