Emirates, which flies daily from Harare to Lusaka and Dubai, is to launch a further transatlantic link with the start of flights to Boston from March 10, 2014.

This will be the airline's 8th route into the United States, 9th into North America and 12th into the wider Americas.

The flight will be operated by a GE-90 engine-powered Boeing 777-200LR and brings the winner of the Skytrax 'World's Best Airline' 2013 award into Boston Logan International Airport on a daily basis.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group said: "Our Boston service will further develop this exciting gateway into the north-eastern United States.

Based on passenger demand, we believe the time is right to further boost our U.S operations, while stimulating channels of trade and tourism to and from the state of Massachusetts and the wider New England region."

Boston Mayor, Thomas M. Menino, said: "The arrival of Emirates and its non-stop service to Dubai will expand Boston's global presence in business and tourism. We look forward to welcoming them to Boston and applaud Massport for its work in helping our City continue its strong growth."

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick commented: "A non-stop service to the Middle East will open up new commercial and economic opportunities for Massachusetts and the region.

This and similar service expansions are how we bolster the Commonwealth's competitiveness.''
