Emirates is connecting global business and leisure travelers with its first-ever passenger service between Dubai and Miami. The airline celebrated the launch of its new four-times-a-week service today, when the inaugural flight touched down in Miami at 11:00 AM local time.
Emirates flight EK213 was welcomed by Miami International Airport with a water cannon salute and drew an audience of passengers, aviation fans and guests to celebrate.
