In an interview with the Gulf News Emirates Chairman Sheikh Ahmad ibn Saeed Al Maktoum hinted at upcoming new routes. He indicated Algiers and Tunis would be started soon, as well as US routes including Houston and a more general reference to South America and Argentina.

Its possible that the TUN/ALG could initially operated together or combined with TIP.

Quoting Emirates777 (Thread starter):
South America and Argentina

This would be great, and it would be great competition in the Europe-LatAm market which is dominated by Iberia and Varig, both with a less mediocre Y class product. Flying from Europe to southern LatAm (SCL / EZE), I think many people would prefer flying an hour or two longer through DXB if it's at the same price. Business travellers as well.

Believe it or not, last week Emirates met with Ecuadorian Aviation officials to get approval for routes to Ecuador from Dubai... Of course, is not that they will start flying them just yet, but they want to have the authority on the routes for future expansion or use them with cooperation with a local airline... EK does think GLOBAL...

The question of who is the current day Pan Am is asked on here quite frequently. If half of EK's asperations transpire, then they certain should be in the running.

Anyway, I would think that TUN and ALG should fit in nicely to the network.

Yup, Europeans will happily fly 8 hrs East to fly 17 hours west.
I'd suggest EK are aiming at the Asia-S.America market here

I know CO and EK codeshare via LGW. I wonder if the proposed route to IAH from Dubai will offer a codeshare too?

Seems logical unless CO has aspirations of serving Dubai on their own metal.

I really think Emirates could use their Bangkok stop more productively to tap new markets.

If they rearranged their DXB-BKK-SYD and DXB-BKK-HKG schedules a little, they could tap into the huge HK-Australia market by offering a HKG-BKK-SYD/MEL etc connection.

They would surely do extremely well with that given the high premium fares charged for HK-Australia services.

I wonder if EK or any other Gulf carrier is ever interested in exploring Central America, maybe even MEX. If they do consider Central America as a potential market in the mid-term, my best guess would be that SJO and PTY would be prime candidates (with PTY being the more likely choice I reckon).

Maybe DXB-CNS-AKL might be possible. I know that the AKL-CNS route is quite high in demand (or is it?) but it would be good for EK to open up a new Australia route as well as another service to AKL. Might be very possible.

I don't think they will actually fly the route themselves (maybe for the next world cup in Africa, they could use a special charter or something, since they are the official airline), BUT maybe in the future, they will do a codeshare with one of Ecuador's airlines and connect pax via Argentina or Brazil... who knows... but it won't be anytime soon.... I do hope to see your invitation one day, more so just to see an EK plane land... that would be the DAY!

They applied for PER-AKL and were denied, I believe they are onl allowed 28 weekly Trans Tasman flights which they are at now . Knowing EK they would like to fly to CNS and DRW aswell sometime. I'm thinking that they might consider something like DXB-KUL-DRW-CNS. First they have to secure more landing rights in Australia though.

NZ are the the only airline flying AKL-CNS, they do it 4x weekly, it has increased over time and will continue to. Not the highest demand but it has grown from 1 weekly flight a few years ago.

Is Dublin a possibility or not now that EI will be leaving Oneworld probably meaning the relationship between EK and EI is only bound to get bigger?

In terms of AKL, I think EK might fly ADL-AKL before DRW or CNS although a direct DRW-AKL would be great, sepcially if it extended onto KUL as only MH is serving this market direct. I thought NZ was open skies meaning that EK didn't have any restrictions on NZ's sides of things. Is it Australia who are not letting EK fly PER-AKL?

Few months ago I heard some rumors about new EK services to BUD and/or PRG, and SZG. Maybe they also mentioned OTP?!

Does somebody know anything about those potential routes? At least a seasonal BUD flight would make sense, as currently the demand for travelling and visiting Dubai is getting bigger and bigger in Hungary...

I think it is open skies. I think it probably is the Australian side that are blocking PER-AKL but at the same time there may have been a limit on how many flights they could operate across the Tasman, EK are free to operate a more direct service to DXB either non stop or via Asia though.

33 VHVXB : Yeah they do suck on trans tasman flights but they offer some cheap fares compared to NZ and QF
