Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, unveiled major new expansion plans for the United States recently, with the launch of daily services to Seattle and Dallas.

It has been revealed by Dubai based Emirates that they are to expand their portfolio of US services. With the Middle East being very important for many British business passengers, the ability to connect directly to American city locations will be welcomed for regular travellers.

With Dubai an important hub for business, travellers from across the world need easy access in and out of the city. To offer a greater network of flights to the US, Emirates are to begin new services to Seattle and Dallas aboard their B777-200LR which offers premium economy fares in addition to traditional seating arrangements. The new Seattle and Dallas services are available to book now, and will make their respective first flights on February 2nd 2012 and March 1st 2012.

Meanwhile, Emirates president Tim Clark said that the network of American cities was to grow further still, with the airline looking at the possibility of adding Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston and Washington D.C to their network. Such a broad network will prove popular with passengers who need to access connections across the world for business. And with the competition provided by Emirates, travellers could benefit from better prices as a result.
