New Jersey— Emirates will introduce a new non-stop service between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Dubai from 1 June 2018, including to its existing everyday flight which runs with a stop in Athens, Greece.

The brand-new non-stop service will be run with an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, providing 8 suites in First Class, 42 seats in Business, 306 in Economy Class, and 19 tonnes of belly-hold freight capability. This new timing complements the existing Emirates service, as it provides travellers with a brand-new choice of an early morning arrival in Newark, and a morning departure.

The early morning arrival in Dubai likewise suggests east-bound travellers can easily explore among the world’s most dynamic cities on a stopover day trip, prior to taking a night connection to another destination on Emirates’ international network.

Boosted connection

Emirates’ non-stop service to Newark will provide tourists in northern New Jersey improved global connectivity, particularly those visiting Africa, the Far East, and the Indian sub-continent. This is a benefit for ethnic communities such as the almost 700,000 Indian Americans living in the higher New York area, who will have one-stop access to nine Indian cities on Emirates’ global network.

Modifications at JFK

From 25 March, Emirates will stop running flight EK207/208, thereby lowering its services between Dubai and New York JFK to 3 day-to-day flights. From JFK, Emirates will maintain two non-stop flights a day to Dubai, and one flight a day through Milan, Italy.

With these running updates at Newark and JFK, the overall variety of Emirates flights serving the New York city will stay the same at 5 day-to-day services from 1 June, 2018.

Modifications at Fort Lauderdale and Orlando

In addition, from 25 March, Emirates will add two flights a week each to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), and Orlando (MCO), successfully returning to everyday services at both airports and showing the steady rebound in customer demand.
