Emirates destinations

Emirates Airline flies to 91 destinations in 55 countries on six continents from its primary hub in Dubai. [http://www.emirates.com/english/flash/route_map.aspx Emirates Route Map] ] It has a particularly strong presence in the Southeast Asian region, which together, connects Dubai with more international destinations in the region than any other Middle Eastern airline. The countries with the largest number of airports served by Emirates are India with 10 and the United Kingdom with 6.

Beyond the immediate region, the airline flies the Kangaroo Route. It flew 4.0% of all international traffic into and out of Australia in the year ended June 2006, fifth to Qantas, for a total of 2,324,530 passengers and accounting for 65% of the market on that segment.

While the airline does not maintain sizable hubs elsewhere, it has taken advantage of liberal bilateral aviation agreements between Dubai and Australia, and with Singapore, to offer more onward connections from Sydney and Dubai. On 1 September, 2005, for example, it launched six-times weekly flights between Bangkok and Dubai. China and India are major markets for the airline and has fuelled much of its growth in recent years, with flights to Beijing increased to twice daily beginning 1 June 2005, and flights to Bangalore increased to daily. Emirates is the leading carrier between India and the Middle East.It discontinued flying to Vietnam due to "security problems" in Ho Chi Minh City as of 10 May 1998.

The airline's strengths have also invited protectionist measures to keep it out of key foreign markets. In particular, it has been unsuccessful in gaining access on the transatlantic routes between London Heathrow Airport and the United States, and on the transpacific routes from Australia to the United States. The airline protested when Cathay Pacific was allowed on the transatlantic route in 2003.

[ Airline Outlook, Aviation Week & Space Technology, August 20-27, 2007, p. 23 ] The German government denied Emirates' request for additional traffic rights to Germany in order to start services to Berlin and Stuttgart.

Due to high fuel prices, which as of July 2008 took up 41 percent of the airline's total costs, [Cite web |title=Emirates to boost cost saving targets as oil heats up |url=http://www.business24-7.ae/Articles/2008/7/Pages/07012008_b43d4848877d4adc89032a08a44537f5.aspx |publisher=Emirates Business 24/7 |last=Jain |first=Shweta |date=2008-07-01 |accessdate=2008-07-02] Emirates Airline cancelled plans to launch flights to Durban, South Africa in December 2008.

According to a report in "The Seattle Times", Emirates is planing to expand nonstop service globally from its hub in Dubai to Los Angeles International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Miami International Airport, Logan International Airport, O'Hare International Airport, Philadelphia International Airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport. [ [http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2003713409_emirates19.html Emirates airline CEO lets ambition fly free] ]

In September 2007, president, Tim Clark said that Emirates is planning on buying 10 more Boeing 747-8s to serve San Francisco, Los Angeles, and South American cities. He also said that Emirates is working on getting new flyover rights over Russia to minimise the length of the flights to North America's West Coast.
