Emirates Airline is to launch six new destinations in 2004 including gateways in the US, Scotland, central Europe, China and West Africa, as its network expands across four continents.

On 2 January, the airline’s operations in Africa leap forward with the launch of flights to Lagos and Accra. On 10 April, Emirates enters China for the first time with the launch of service to Shanghai, as well as starting services to Glasgow, the airline's fifth point in the UK. On 1 May, EK makes its debut in Vienna, and a month later it makes its first appearance in the US with the launch of a non-stop service to New York on 1 June.

"In 2004, Emirates will fly further than ever before to reach our goal of a truly global airline. We will open destinations where we know there is demand with services that meet passengers requirements using the very latest technology,” says His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Emirates.
