United Airlines connects Dubai, NYC direct
United Airlines has launched a new nonstop daily service between its New York/Newark hub and Dubai International (DXB).
United is the only US airline to offer non-stop flights between Dubai and the United States, flying to more destinations in the Middle East than any other US airline. The new service marks United’s return to Dubai, which the airline previously served up until 2016.
The launch of the new service is part of United’s historic commercial agreement with Emirates, announced in 2022, enhancing each airline’s network and giving customers easier access to hundreds of destinations within the United States and around the world.
Customers from the US flying to Dubai can travel onwards with Emirates or its sister airline flydubai to more than 100 different cities, providing more options to connect across the Middle East than ever before, whilst customers flying from Dubai to New York can take advantage of onward connections with United to over 80 destinations across the Americas.
