Emirates Resumed Flights to Orlando

Emirates at Orlando MCO

After a 15-month absence, Emirates returned to Orlando with the first flight landed Orlando International Airport’s (MCO); marking the airport's longest long-haul route.

The last inbound passenger flight from Dubai International Airport was March 23, 2020. Although passenger service had been suspended early last year, Emirates planes continued to fly into Orlando International Airport on a regular basis delivering cargo to the region.

“As we continue to recover from the global pandemic, we’re glad to see our international carriers make their return to the Central Florida region and our world-class airport,” said Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority.



“The resumption of passenger service by Emirates really means the return of access to incredible destinations in Southeast Asia and India.”

When Emirates first began Orlando service in 2015 it also opened the gateway to Africa, the Middle East and even Australia. Emirates, known as a premier air carrier with top-notch service, is resuming service with four weekly flights on a Boeing 777. The aircraft features 266 seats across three classes.

Flights to/from Orlando will operate four times weekly on Emirates’ two-class Boeing 777-200LR, offering 38 lie-flat seats in Business and 264 ergonomically designed seats in Economy class. 

Inbound flights depart Dubai International at 8:55 a.m. and arrive at MCO at 4:30 p.m. Departing flights leave Orlando at 9 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, arriving in Dubai at 7:10 p.m. the next day.
