Metro Airport asks travelers’ help to gain Detroit-Dubai air service
Detroit Metro Airport is using social media in hopes of getting Detroit-Dubai service from either Emirates or Delta Air Lines.
Hoping air traveler pleas will grab airlines’ attention, Metro officials have set up an online petition for service, arguing that the largest Arab-American population outside the Middle East lives in metro Detroit. Dubai also is a direct gateway to 17 destinations in India – a spot many Michiganders and auto-related business travelers need to fly.
Travelers can go to www.detroit2dubai.com to sign the petition.
