Emirates increase passenger capacity on its newly introduced Boston route


Emirates increase passenger capacity on its newly introduced Boston route

Dubai-basedEmirates Airlines who launched their Boston service earlier this year are looking forward to considerably improve their passenger and cargo carrying capacity within the coming weeks when they begin operating the route using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, instead of the Boeing 777-200LR, which are currently in use.

By bringing in the Boeing 777-300ER, the world’s largest twinjet offering a maximum seating capacity of up to 451 passengers, Emirates will be increasing their seating capacity by 40%, translating into 88 additional places in Economy Class seats.

Boston, whose Logan International Airport sees close to 12 million visitors pass through their gates each year, is reportedly experiencing strong economic and commercial growth.

Add that to the fact that more than fifty New England based international companies are represented in the UAE, easy to understand that the Boston route is proving to be increasingly popular among corporate travellers travelling to and from the Emirates, passing through its major hub in Dubai and possibly onwards to such other important centers for business India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Singapore and China.

For the time being Emirates will continue to operate a daily flight from Boston, which departs at 23:15 from Logan and lands in Dubai at 19:30the following day. Return flights depart Dubai at 08:50am and arrive in Boston at 14:45.

Passengers arriving from Dubai and are interested in continuing their journey can take advantage of the Emirates reciprocal agreement with JetBlue airline who provide convenient connections to and from 47 destinations throughout the United States from their hub within Logan International Airport.
