Emirates will introduce a new non-stop service between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Dubai from June 1, adding to its existing daily flight which operates with a stop in Athens, Greece.
The new non-stop service will be operated with an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight suites in first class, 42 seats in business class and 306 in economy class, as well as 19 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity. Flight EK223 will depart Dubai at 3:00am and arrive in Newark at 9:00am. The return flight, EK224, departs Newark at 11:50am, arriving in Dubai at 8:20am the next day. All times are local.
The morning arrival in Dubai also means east-bound travellers can 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.
Changes in US routes
Meanwhile, 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.
In addition, also 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.
Reuters reported that Emirates did not say when it plans to increase services to Boston, Los Angeles and Seattle, which were also reduced last year as a result of certain US restrictions.
"We continue to closely monitor the situation with the view to reinstate and grow our US flight operations as soon as viable," an Emirates spokeswoman told Reuters.
