Emirates will introduce a new nonstop service between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Dubai from June 1, 2018, adding to its existing daily flight which operates with a stop in Athens, Greece.
The new nonstop service will be operated with an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, offering 8 suites in First Class, 42 seats in Business, 306 in Economy Class, and 19 tons of belly-hold cargo capacity. Flight EK223 will depart Dubai at 0300 am and arrive in Newark at 0900 am. The return flight EK224 departs Newark at 1150 am, arriving in Dubai at 0820 am 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.
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.
Changes at New York JFK
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 nonstop flights a day to Dubai, and one flight a day via Milan, Italy.
With these operating updates at Newark and JFK, the total number of Emirates flights serving the New York metropolitan area will remain unchanged at 5 daily services from June 1.
Changes at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood and Orlando
In addition, from March 25, Emirates will add two flights a week each to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood (FLL), and Orlando (MCO), effectively returning to daily services at both airports and reflecting the steady rebound in customer demand.
