Dubai-based Emirates airline will start a new non-stop daily service between Dubai and Newark (EWR) effective June 1. 2018. The new flight will complement the existing daily flight which operates via Athens, Greece.

Emirates will use a three class cabin Boeing 777-300ER, offering eight suites in first class, 42 flat-bed seats in business, and 306 bone-crunching narrow seats in economy class. The flight will also give Emirates, 19 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity too.

Flight EK224 will depart Newark Liberty at 11:50 and arrive Dubai at 08:20, the next morning.

With this new flight, the airline offers the choice of a morning or evening arrival in to Newark.

Reduction at JFK

To balance the capacity, and maintain the five flights operating from the New York/Newark area, effective March 25, Emirates will suspend flights EK207 and EK208. The airline will continue to operate its other two non-stop flights between Dubai and New York JFK, and one via Milan, Italy.

India implications

With over 700,000 Indians residing, Newark is a popular destination to and from India. The new flight will offer connections in the 20 hour total trip time from Mumbai and New Delhi connection inbound to Newark, and in the 17 hour range inbound to Mumbai and New Delhi. However Ahmedabad passengers will not benefit from the new flight.

Daily flights at Fort Lauderdale and Orlando
