Emirates Airline has announced its ninth destination in the U.S. will be the Windy City of Chicago. The daily route is slated to commence August 4, 2014 and will be operated by a Boeing 777-200LR leaving Dubai International Airport at 9:45 a.m. and arriving in Chicago at 3:35 p.m. the same day. The return flight will depart Chicago’s O’Hare at 8:35 p.m. and arrive in Dubai at 7:10 p.m. the next day. The flight has a capacity of 266 passengers with eight First Class suites, 42 Business Class suites, and 216 Economy Class seats. The route follows the addition of service to Boston from March 10th of this year and existing routes to Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, among others. Says Tim Clark, president of Emirates, “Chicago has long been a destination in the United States which Emirates has wished to serve. Like Dubai, Chicago is a major global trade and transportation hub with great cultural diversity that is an economic engine for its region.”
