Emirates Announces Bogotá Flights With Boeing 777

Emirates has announced plans to service Bogotá daily with its Boeing 777 from June with a stopover in Miami to boost connectivity.

Emirates has unveiled plans to boost its operation towards South America by adding a daily service to Bogota from Dubai and via Miami on its Boeing 777-300ERs.

As part of the latest announcement, the airline will serve the Colombian capital from June 3, 2024, with the flight departing from Dubai with a stopover in Miami before venturing south.

The announcement expands Emirates’ South American network to four gateways and complements service towards São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires.

However, more importantly, the airline will establish a historic first-ever described link between the northern part of the South American continent and the Middle East region.

Emirates says it sees strong demand for flights between Colombia and the United Arab Emirates, and thus, launching services makes sense. However, the airline also believes there’s a strong demand for onward connectivity across the Emirates global network.

The Newly Announced Flight

Emirates says the service will operate EK213/214, departing from Dubai at 0215 and arriving in Miami at 1005. After a two-hour layover, the aircraft will leave Miami for Bogota at 1235 before finally arriving at its end destination in South America at 1525.

The return leg is scheduled to depart Bogota at 1725 with a touchdown back into Miami at 2215. The aircraft will depart shortly after midnight the next day, at 0045, with an arrival back into Dubai at 2300.

This schedule is for the summer, with adjustments being made ever so slightly when the winter schedule comes into effect on November 3, 2024.

Using The Boeing 777-300ER

Emirates will take its Boeing 777-300ER towards Bogota, featuring 352 seats across three cabins, making it a three-class 777. Lie flat seats are present in First Class and Business Class, emphasising the service’s Premium element.

Additionally, Emirates highlights the freight capabilities of the 777, with up to 20 tonnes of cargo capacity on each flight. As a result, new and existing global markets can benefit from Colombian exports.

Emirates says that its 777s are just one of the many aircraft equipped with a leading IFE offering with thousands of channels from a host of languages worldwide. Additionally, there are movies, TV shows and many other forms of entertainment.
