All Things Travel: Emirates Airline Opens Up Middle East With New Flights From Boston
" BOSTON – (CBS) – One of the world’s fastest growing airlines will start new daily flights to the Middle East on March 10.

In a major coup for Logan Airport and business travelers, Emirates Airline has selected Boston for its latest U.S. expansion. The carrier has a reputation for excellent service and business travelers will be able to fly to Dubai and transfer to flights to Africa and Asia.

Emirates has begun hiring staff for the Logan Airport start-up and also made news last week as a major part of three Middle Eastern airlines that purchased $95 billion new Boeing 777X jets. Delivery is scheduled to begin in 2020.

At the Dubai Air Show, Emirates announced that it had placed orders for 150 of the new Boeing jets that will carry about 350 passengers. The plane will also save 12 percent in fuel costs, compared to jets now flying.

According to the Emirates web site, production of the new Boeing 777X will support 400,000 U.S. jobs "
