Emirates Adds Second California Gateway

5 North American Gateways

One of the fastest growing airlines in the world is Emirates Airline, which is Emirates Airline

headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Thanks both to its central location and wealth, Emirates continues to grow despite the overall global aviation slowdown. New aircraft continue to enter the Emirates fleet and the airline is expanding while many of its competitors are contracting.

In North America, Emirates flies out of New York’s JFK Airport, Houston, Los Angeles, and Toronto. This October the airline will be opening a fifth North American gateway at San Francisco. Emirates will be the first airline to connect Dubai and San Francisco using its newest, technologically advanced Boeing 777-200LR on that route. The aircraft offers 266 seats in a three class configuration and will provide 10 tons of freight lift in both directions.

Covering Six Continents

At present, Emirates provides service to 99 cities in 62 countries scattered across the Mideast, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and North America. The airline serves one South American city, Sao Paulo.

North American Hiring

The question many visitors to this site have about Emirates isn’t whether they are hiring, but how to get hired. Though we’ve provided links on our Emirates information page to help people out, we thought you’d like to know that the airline occasionally holds hiring sessions in Canada and the United States.
