This is still at a planning stage however...
Emirates are considering entering the US market by the end of the year 2001. They would do this by operating a one-stop A330 service via Manchester in to EWR.
Emirates A330 aircrew are going on a North America air route training course in a few months.
The Airline feels this could enable them to start building their presence in the US market before launching on a bigger scale in January 2003 when the A340-500s arrive. They are experiencing very strong USA bound traffic on their flights through LGW and LHR.
