DUBAI, United Arab Emirates--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Emirates will introduce daily non-stop service on routes from Dubai to Los Angeles and San Francisco starting Friday, May 1, 2009. Having operated thrice-weekly service in both markets since late 2008 (Los Angeles commenced October 26; San Francisco, December 15), Emirates has taken additional delivery of the technologically advanced Boeing 777-200LR aircraft and now operates daily service to both cities from the airline’s new Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport.

“We have been very successful with our new West Coast routes in the past four to six months,” explains Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Africa and the Americas Nigel Page. “With the new daily services, Emirates is now better able to meet the demand of West Coast travelers visiting Dubai, as well as those taking advantage of the conveniently located city as a connection hub for travels to other parts of the Gulf Region and beyond.”

Emirates currently offers several promotions for passengers from the West Coast and beyond:

Daily flights out of Los Angeles and San Francisco will depart both cities at 4:45 p.m., arriving in Dubai at 7:40 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. (respectively) the following day (local times). The non-stop, long haul flights deliver the highest standards of comfort, as the Boeing 777-200LR is fitted with eight luxurious first class private suites, 42 lie-flat beds in business class and generous space for 216 passengers in economy class. All passengers will enjoy unparalleled service from Emirates’ international cabin crew, meals prepared by gourmet chefs and the award-winning ice (information, communication, entertainment) digital widescreen product boasting over 1,000 channels and nearly 1,700 hours of video and audio entertainment.

Emirates, one of the world’s most successful and fastest-growing international airlines, has announced an overall expansion plan of 14 percent throughout 2009, with an increase of 18 new passenger aircraft to its fleet. The airline’s additional flights afford passengers a greater choice of travel options, more frequent connections with their target markets and shorter, more convenient connection times.
