Emirates has commenced a new daily non-stop service from its base in Dubai to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
The US city is home to some 2.7 million people, along with many Fortune 500 companies such as MacDonald’s Corp., Walgreen Co., Abbott Laboratories and Boeing, making it a popular business destination.
Chicago is Emirates’ ninth gateway in the US, following the Gulf carrier’s successful launch of its Boston service back in March.
The airline is rapidly increasing the capacity of its flights into the US to meet demand, and will be deploying its flagship Airbus A380 onto its Dallas, San Francisco and Houston services later this year.
The Dubai–Chicago route will be served by the Boeing 777-200LR, which features a three-class configuration with eight seats in first, 42 in business and 217 in economy.
Flight EK235 departs Dubai International Airport everyday at 0945 and arrives at O’Hare at 1525. The return flight, EK236 will leave Chicago at 2035 before touching back down in Dubai International Airport at 1910 the following day.
