Emirates Planning New Flights Between Miami & Bogota

Emirates has filed plans with Colombian regulators to operate new flights between Miami and Bogota.

The new service would be operated by 777-200LR or 777-300ER.

A public hearing on the new service is scheduled this week.

Emirates currently operates a daily flight between Dubai and Miami on the 777-300ER.

Schedules for the Emirates Dubai-Miami flights have already been adjusted to arrive earlier and leave later from June and onwards, possibly to allow for the add on flights to Colombia.

Emirates passenger count at MIA was up 40% in 2023, while Qatar Airways was up 12%.

Miami and Bogota is one of the most frequent international flights out of Mia. It’s wayyy more important than flights to Serbia but Asian connections would be cool

Makes sense, that flight arrives early then the plane is parked at MIA a long time, might as well use that downtime to make extra $$$

Interesting. One commenter made the point that Emirates is just doing this to earn more money while their plane is sitting in Miami waiting for the next flight to Dubai. Is there a ‘Colombian connection’ to Dubai that makes this a viable route for Emirates. Are there a lot of Colombians in Dubai or others who want to go to Bogota? Curious?

There is some traffic but it’s nothing substantial by any means. There is also some connecting traffic beyond Dubai, but again, nothing substantial either. Colombia market unlike São Paulo doesn’t have that many ties to South/East Asia. That being said the aircraft does spend a lot of time on the ground in Miami. Emirates has expressed interest in Bogota many times before. With the aircraft already flying to Miami, there is a huge amount of cargo traffic everyday between MIA and BOG which on its own could make the flight profitable. Passengers are just cherry on top. Not to mention that the two cities have an incredibly large amount of O&D traffic, this route alone should be a very good performer for Emirates. Make sense to send the plane to BOG and make money instead of sitting on the ground for 12 hours not doing anything.

As long as they learn English I’m fine with it. It’s a bit weird to hear more Spanish than English in the US.

Then learn another language. Most educated people in Europe are fluent in English.

Spanish was spoken here long before English?. indigenous languages were spoken in Mexico long before Spanish so should the Mexicans stop speaking Spanish and go back to speaking indigenous languages?

The difference is Mexicans aren’t complaining that Nahuatl and Mayan are still spoken by millions in their country.

Not an argument when they voluntarily live separately for the most part, same with Indian reservations. You don’t see Nahuatl speakers denying Mexicans service at McDonald’s in the middle of Tijuana because they don’t speak the language of the land.

You mean like the part-aboriginals from Central America that Mexicans pejoratively call “coyotes,” and built a wall at the Guatemalan border in attempt to keep them out?

I agree with you Jen and I peaky ‘panish. Miami is a poor city with low wages relative to every other large city because of many factors but one of them is some people’s reluctance to assimilate and learn the language of trade and government in this country.

I speak Spanish, I learned it by only being in Miami for 3 years while taking classes. I wonder why they don’t do the same.

This isn’t North Korea or Iran, we can speak whatever language we please, so can you. If you don’t like Freedoms like our 1st Amendment, there are plenty of countries you can move to.
