Emirates will introduce a new non-stop service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Dubai from June 1 2018, adding to its existing daily flight, which operates with a stop in Athens, Greece.
The new service will be operated with Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight suites in First Class, 42 seats in Business Class, and 306 seats in Economy Class.
Flight EK223 will depart Dubai at 03:00am and arrive in Newark at 09:00am. The return flight EK224 will depart Newark at 11:50am and arrive in Dubai at 08:20am the next day.
The new timing complements the existing Emirates service, as it provides travellers with a new option of a morning arrival in Newark, and a morning departure.
The morning arrival in Dubai also means east-bound travellers can conveniently explore one of the world’s most dynamic cities on a stopover day tour, before taking an evening connection to another destination on Emirates’ global network.
Emirates’ non-stop service to Newark will offer travellers in northern New Jersey enhanced global connectivity, particularly those heading to Africa, the Far East, and the Indian sub-continent.
From March 25, Emirates will stop operating flight EK207/208, thereby reducing its services between Dubai and New York, JFK, to three daily flights.
From JFK, Emirates will retain two non-stop flights a day to Dubai, and one flight a day via Milan, Italy.
With the operating updates at Newark and JFK, the total number of Emirates flights serving the New York metropolitan area will remain unchanged at five daily services from June 1.
In addition, from March 25, Emirates will add two flights a week each to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, effectively returning to daily services at both airports and reflecting the steady rebound in customer demand.
Emirates serves 12 points in the US, helping to link the world’s largest economy with emerging markets that will further drive American economic growth, trade, and job creation.
Of the 80-plus destinations on the airline’s Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific network, 67 are not directly served by any US carrier.
