Emirates launches its first-ever Dubai-Miami nonstop service utilising a B777-300ER giving a boost to SkyCargo’s existing cargo services into the city.

The new service is being operated four times weekly and brings Emirates’ U.S. network to 12 destinations on over 70 weekly flights.

Emirates SkyCargo has been operating passenger freighter services to Miami since October 2020. These services have been offering cargo capacity into and out of Miami facilitating exports of perishables, electronics, and other components as well as e-commerce goods.
