Dubai — Emirates started its daily, non-stop service to Boston on Monday, the airline’s eighth destination to the United States. The new Emirates route will leave Dubai at 9.45am each day and arrive in Boston at 3.15pm. The return flight departs from Boston at 11.15pm and lands in Dubai at 7.30pm the following day.

Emirates will operate daily flights between the two cities using a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft in a three-class configuration, with eight seats in first class, 42 in business class and 216 in economy. An round-trip economy ticket will cost about $1500.


About Emirates

On October 25, 1985, Emirates flew its first routes out of Dubai with just two aircraft—a leased Boeing 737 and an Airbus 300 B4. Then as now, our goal was quality, not quantity, and in the years since taking those first small steps onto the regional travel scene, Emirates has evolved into a globally influential travel and tourism conglomerate known the world over for our commitment to the highest standards of quality in every aspect of our business.

Though wholly owned by the Government of Dubai, Emirates has grown in scale and stature not through protectionism but through competition—competition with the ever-growing number of international carriers that take advantage of Dubai’s open-skies policy. Not only do we support that policy, but we see it as vital to maintaining our identity and our competitiveness. After making its initial start-up investment, the Government of Dubai saw fit to treat Emirates as a wholly independent business entity, and today we are thriving because of it. The airline has recorded an annual profit in every year since its third in operation.

Continuing our explosive growth while continually striving to provide the best service in the industry is the secret of Emirates’ success
