The new flight will complement the existing four daily Emirates flights between Dubai and New York’s JFK airport and constitutes the only year-round, non-stop daily service between Greece and the United States — a service that does not exist today and has not existed since 2012.
Emirates flight EK209 will depart Dubai at 10:50 local time, arriving in Athens at 14:25 before departing again at 16:40 and arriving into Newark at 22:00 on the same day. The return flight EK210 will depart Newark at 23:45 local time, arriving in Athens the next day at 15:05. EK210 will depart once again from Athens at 17:10 bound for Dubai where it will arrive at 23:50, facilitating convenient onward connections to over 50 Emirates destinations in India, the Far East and Australia.
The new Dubai-Athens-Newark route will be served by Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
