Emirates plans to begin flights to Dallas/Fort Worth and Seattle from Dubai early next year, taking the number of US destinations it serves to six.

It will begin operating daily to Dallas/Fort Worth from 2 February and daily to Seattle from 1 March, said the carrier, which will operate Boeing 777 aircraft on both routes.

"These new services emphasise Emirates' confidence in, and long-term commitment to, the United States," said Tim Clark, president of Emirates. "With six gateways offering convenient connectivity from points across the country, customers in the US will find it easier than ever to access our vast global network."

Emirates currently already serves Houston, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The airline will be the only carrier operating between Dubai and Dallas/Fort Worth and Seattle, schedules in Innovata show.
