Now that the pandemic nears its end and international travel is on the rise, people in the U.S. long to experience the luxury of Dubai.
While the U.S. and Dubai have been on good terms, dealings between the two countries are better than ever. The United Arab Emirates is now a top spot for American tourism.
The UAE never shut down during the pandemic, but now that people are getting back to international travel, demand is higher than ever.
United Airlines responded to this demand by creating a direct flight between Newark (EWR) and Dubai International (DXB). A U.S. carrier hasn’t been in the UAE since 2016 due to a feud between U.S. and Persian Gulf Carriers.
The service will begin on March 25, 2023. Emirates Airlines has even agreed to sign a codeshare agreement with the U.S. carrier.
Travelers are excited to have more easy access to a favorite vacation spot. Visitors can now enjoy taking a ride on the Ain Dubai, marveling at the Burj Khalifa and luxury shopping at the Dubai Mall.
To make the deal even sweeter, people flying from both United Airlines and Dubai International can use their frequent flyer miles. Guests will also get any other perks associated with their frequent flyer memberships, like upgrades to Business Class and access to private lounges.
Travelers will be delighted at how much easier it is to get to Dubai. Perhaps other carriers will follow suit.
