Emirates confirmed Wednesday that it will launch a new daily service from Dubai to Bogotá (Colombia), with a stopover in Miami, starting June 3, 2024.

The flight will depart Dubai at 02:15, arriving in Miami at 10:05. From South Florida it will take off at 12:35 rumba to Bogota, where it will land at 15:25 (local time).

It will depart from the Colombian capital at 17:25, landing in Miami at 22:15, before continuing its journey at 00:45 the following day and arriving in Dubai at 23:00 (local time).

The aircraft operating the route will be a Boeing 777-300ER offering 354 seats in three classes: First Class, Business Class and Economy.

Emirates will become the first airline to offer a range of premium services on the popular Miami-Bogota route.

“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”, Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline, said.

Due to the high altitude of the city of Bogotá, it is not possible to operate a non-stop flight from Dubai, deeming a stopover necessary. Miami was selected due to its tourism and trade links with Bogotá, Emirates said.

Passengers on flights in both directions between Dubai and Bogotá should meet entry regulations for the United States and hold the required documents, due to immigration procedures in Miami. Colombian and UAE citizens can enjoy visa-free entry for up to 90 days in Dubai and Bogotá respectively, thanks to reciprocal visa arrangements in place between both countries.

Emirates’ entry into Bogotá will expand its South American network to four gateways, complementing its scheduled services to São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires.
