US Airline Giant Resumes Flights to Dubai After Seven-Year Break

A major American carrier, United Airlines, has relaunched nonstop daily flights from New York/Newark to Dubai International Airport (DXB) after seven years.

The resumption is part of an agreement, signed in 2022, between United Airlines and Emirates. The inaugural flights took off to DXB from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) on Saturday, marking the first direct flight from New Jersey to Dubai in seven years.
