Emirates President Won’t Rule Out More U.S.-Europe Nonstop Flights

By | Posted:

Emirates President Tim Clark speaks to reporters last year in Dubai. Clark said Emirates has made no promises about future U.S. fifth freedom flights.

Skift Take: It's funny. Fifth Freedom flights — those are routes where an airline flies from a place other than its home country — account for roughly 1 percent of Emirates' capacity, according to the airline's president. And Emirates has only two such routes to the United States. But it's a hot topic among airline insiders, and it doesn't sound like that will change.
