Emirates has announced it will resume daily services to Newark via Athens from June 1.
The resumed flight will provide global travellers with another access point to the popular New York Metropolitan area and serving the large Greek-American community in the United States.
This is also while offering a convenient connection to travellers headed towards the Middle East, West Asia, and Africa via Dubai.
The addition of Newark via Athens will take Emirates’ US network to 10 destinations following the resumption of services to Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York JFK, Washington DC, Dallas and San Francisco (to resume on March 2).
The Dubai-Athens-Newark flight will operate daily with a three-class Boeing 777-300ER, complementing Emirates’ double daily flights to New York (JFK).
The airline continues to expand across North America and the resumed link between Greece and the US will open up year-round connectivity, facilitate trade, boost tourism and benefit consumers by providing them with choice and convenience.
Emirates will also increase its flights to the Greek capital, Athens, flying daily to support the newly resumed service.
