Emirates adds non-stop services to Newark, Florida

  • Dubai News

Emirates airline will introduce a non-stop service between Dubai and Newark Liberty International Airport from June 1, as well as adding flights to Florida, the carrier announced on Thursday.



The new flight will add to an existing daily flight to Newark, which operates with a stop in Athens.

The non-stop service, EK223 – which will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER – will depart from Dubai at 3am and arrive in Newark at 9am, while EK224 will depart Newark at 11.50am and arrive in Dubai at 8.20am the following day.

According to Emirates, the morning arrival in Dubai also means that east-bound travellers can explore Dubai on stopover day tours before taking a connecting flight to another destination.

The flight will also give travellers in New Jersey enhanced connectivity to Africa, the Far East, and South-Asia, particularly for the 700,000 Indian-Americans who reside in the greater New York area.

Reduce JFK, increase Florida flights

Additionally, Emirates announced that it will reduce the number of services between Dubai and New York to three daily from March 25, while retaining two flights daily from JFK airport to Dubai and one flight a day via Milan.

Also on March 25, Emirates will add two flights a week each to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida, which the airline says is a reflecting of a steady rebound in demand.

In total, Emirates serves 12 points in the United States.

The Emirates announcement comes amidst the backdrop of continued calls by American carriers lobbying for policy changes to crack down on what they describe as more than $50 billion in “unfair” subsidies for Gulf airlines.

Survey statistics, however, show that a majority of Americans support upholding the country’s current open skies agreement.

A poll commissioned by the Open Skies Coalition, for example, found that 70 percent of 2,200 American adults queried picked protecting travellers, workers and exported from unfair policies over protecting US corporations from foreign competitors.
