Traveling the world just got easier. The partnership of ISS GMT, headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with Emirates Airlines means that members of the yachting community can now commute between Fort Lauderdale and Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia and South Africa with just one stop in Dubai. This service starts December 15.
“For our yachting clients throughout South Florida and the Caribbean, this is an opportunity to make travel more comfortable when starting or ending their contracts. In addition to making just one stop, Emirates allows us to sell refundable and changeable airfares along with extra baggage allowance. All in all, this helps the yacht community to save time and money on long haul travel,” says ISS GMT president, Tim Davey.
The nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale and Dubai uses a Boeing 777-200LR aircraft in a three-class configuration, offering 8 First Class suites, 42 Business Class lie-flat beds and 216 Economy Class seats for travelers, and up to 15 tons of belly hold cargo for shippers. In addition, Emirates offers its First Class and Business Class passengers travel to and from the airport via a complimentary Chauffeur-driven service, making it convenient for customers from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Palm Beach and other South Florida cities to arrive on time for their flight. www.flygmt.com
