Emirates is expanding its Latin American network with the launch of a new daily route from Dubai to Bogota, Colombia, starting June 3, 2024. The new flight will operate via Miami.

Operating on a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, the new route will provide a total of 354 seats per flight, including 8 First Class seats, 42 Business Class seats, and 304 Economy seats. The flight time from Dubai to Miami will be approximately 16 hours and 45 minutes, while the connecting flight from Miami to Bogota will take approximately three hours and 50 minutes.

“We’ve long wanted to serve Colombia, and the addition of Bogotá to our network is part of our strategy to deliver better connectivity, expand options and choice for travellers and provide unparalleled premium experiences on the ground and in the air,” said Emirates President Sir Tim Clark in a press release. “The launch of our daily operations to the dynamic capital of Colombia also underscores our deep commitment to South America, and is poised to foster increased business and leisure travel opportunities for customers.”

The airline says each flight will also offer up to 20 tons of cargo capacity per flight. Colombia is well-known for exports such as fresh flowers and various perishable goods.

American, Avianca, and LATAM Colombia currently serve the Miami-Bogota route. According to Cirium Diio schedule data, there are up to 18 daily flights between the two cities in June 2024.

Miami-Bogota joins other Emirates fifth-freedom routes. The airline also flies from New York (JFK) to Milan and Newark to Athens.
