Emirates in Colombia: flight schedules, prices and tickets for the new airline

The airline announced that its operations in the country will begin in June with a daily flight from Dubai to Bogota, with a stop in Miami.

The supply of air transport in Colombia continues to rise. Following the announcement of the arrival of the Jet Smart aircraft to the country with new national and international destinations, it was confirmed that Fly Emirates will launch a daily flight from Dubai to Bogota, starting June 3, 2024, as part of its expansion strategy in Latin America.

The airline explained in a statement that, given the capital’s height of 2,625 meters above sea level, it is impossible to schedule a direct flight between the two cities, so a stop is scheduled in Miami. This destination was chosen for its tourist attraction and trade links with Bogotá. The luxury airline will operate a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with a capacity of 354 passengers, divided into three classes: economy, business, and first class, which has amenities such as fully reclining seats or an entertainment system. The service also includes food and drinks.

The opening of Emirates in Colombia has been criticized by traditional airline Avianca, which in a hearing with Aeronáutica Civil filed a complaint alleging that the Emirati company is coming to exploit the market without offering more connectivity options in Colombia. The authorities granted permission and the government celebrated the agreement. “The launch of the new route between Bogotá and Dubai is an achievement to promote trade, investment and tourism. The goal of the Gustavo Petro government is to ensure opportunities for the development and prosperity of communities in our territory, and by doing so, we reaffirm our commitment,” said German Umaña Mendoza, Minister of Trade, Industry and Tourism of Colombia. With the support of foreign investments.”
