MIA Gets Big Boost In Middle East Flights, Including New Emirates Flight To Dubai, New Tel Aviv Service, & Qatar Increase

Miami International Airport will have two new flights to the Middle East over the next two months. Other airlines are also increasing service to the region.

The first new flight takes of June 4 (tomorrow) to Tel Aviv, on American Airlines.

The Tel Aviv flights will operate 3 times weekly with a Boeing 777-200. Kosher wine will be offered onboard.

Seat maps for the flights show relatively strong demand, even though Israel is currently not allowing most foreigners into the country due to the coronavirus crisis.

The second new middle east flight will begin in July on Emirates, after the airline officially announced the new service this morning.

The Emirates Miami-Dubai flight will begin on July 22, 2021, operating four times weekly.

Emirates will fly a three-class Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy Class.

Emirates flight EK213 will depart Dubai at 3:10AM, arriving in Miami at 11:00AM. The return flight EK214 will depart Miami at 9:10PM, arriving in Dubai at 7:35PM the next day.

The new service will add to the existing connections provided at MIA by Emirates SkyCargo, the airline said.

Also this month, El Al is increasing service between Miami and Tel Aviv to 5 flights per week, the most flights ever for the airline to MIA.

Turkish has resumed daily flights to MIA, their highest level ever at MIA.

Qatar Airways has increased service from MIA to Doha to 5 times weekly beginning in July, up from 3 times weekly in June.

We need ASIA now.
Miami Tokyo or Miami Taipei

This will likely be delayed for some time given Emirates, Qatar, and Turkish all providing amazing connections to Asia.

It is a longer trip, but not by much.

It is a longer trip, by much. It is 16h to Dubai or Doha from Miami, plus the connection time, plus 10h to Tokyo. You are looking at a 26 to 28h ordeal flying to Tokyo via the Middle East. A direct flight from Miami would take around 16h, which is much shorter.

Um, the Middle East is Asia, but I assume you mean East Asia. People on this blog really are into semantics, especially when talking about what constitutes “Miami.”

Supersonic flights direct to Asia would be a game changer for the city and there’s a handful of airplane manufacturer startups working to make that happen. Still likely to be several years off into the future but perhaps by the late 2020s that’ll be a reality

Only one plane I know could possibly make the trip A350-900 extended range and that’s to Taiwan. Currently no planes have the range to make it to East Asia

Emirates’s 3:10 AM Dubai departure time to Miami is kind of weird. However, Dubai is a connecting hub, and the time facilitates connections to Miami, and beyond from arrival flight banks from parts of Asia, Africa, and other paerts of the Middle East.

There is an Emirates 777 this morning at MIA, not cargo, you can see it from the 836..

It is one of the passenger 777s they converted to cargo. There are no seats on that plane.

Emirates is in the process of adding the seats back for their 777 network to grow

It is cargo. They’re using pax planes for cargo because of the pandemic.

I am glad the service is on a beautiful Boeing aircraft and not a junky Airbus.

And out of nowhere, Turkish adding another three weekly flights to Miami in less than two weeks. Starts June. 16, bringing frequency to 10x a week.

Jet fuel or high-price plane tickets would be a swell thing to tax for a ballot initiative to fund school meals or public elder daycare or summer jobs for at-risk teens or something like that
