Emirates will introduce a new non-stop service between Dubai and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), New York, USA starting from 1 June 2018.
The new non-stop service will be in addition to its existing daily flight to Newark via Athens, Greece.
The new service will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER, offering 8 suites in First Class, 42 seats in Business, 306 in Economy Class, and 19 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity.
Flight EK223 will depart Dubai at 0300am and arrive in Newark at 0900am. The return flight EK224 departs Newark at 1150am, arriving in Dubai at 0820am the next day.
This 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.
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 India.
From 25 March, Emirates will reduce its Dubai-New York JFK service from 4 daily to 3 daily. From JFK, it will retain 2 non-stop flights a day to Dubai, and 1 flight a day via Milan, Italy.
With these operational changes at Newark and JFK, the total number of Emirates flights serving the New York metropolitan area will remain unchanged at 5 daily services from 1 June.
In addition, from 25 March, Emirates will add two flights a week each to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), and Orlando (MCO), effectively returning to daily services at both airports.
Emirates flies to 12 destinations in the United States of America, helping to link the world’s largest economy with emerging markets.
