Emirates cuts flights to the United States

Emirates has announced a reduction in its flights to the United States due to lower demand for travel to the US as a result of recent US government policies.

An Emirates spokesperson stated that “Emirates can confirm that we will be reducing flights to five of the 12 US cities we currently serve. From 1 May and 23 May respectively, our Fort Lauderdale and Orlando operations will move from daily services to five a week. From 1 and 2 June respectively, our Seattle and Boston operations will move from twice-daily services, to a daily service. From 1 July, our operations to Los Angeles will move from twice-daily to a daily service.”

The spokesman added that Emirates had made these decisions on a commercial basis, after the demand for travel to the United States declined as a result of recent actions taken by the US authorities, which had a direct impact on consumer interest and demand for air travel to the United States. The measures included tightening visa restrictions, tightening security checks, and not allowing passengers to take their electronic devices into aircraft cabins.
