Emirates is to launch a daily service from Dubai to Newark Liberty International, via Athens.
Starting March 12, the new route complements Emirates’ existing four daily flights between Dubai and New York JFK airport.
Emirates’ new Dubai-Athens-Newark flight will also provide a year-round non-stop daily service between the United States and Greece – a service not existed since 2012.
The airline will operate a wide-body Boeing 777-300ER on the route, offering 8 seats in First, 42 seats in Business and 304 seats in Economy class.
Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airline said: “The Greek Government and Athens International Airport approached Emirates some time ago to consider serving the route between Athens and New York.
“After careful review, Emirates concluded that extending one of our Dubai-Athens flights to Newark would be commercially and operationally feasible.
“We are pleased to be able to help meet a strong consumer need long neglected by other airlines, and we would like to thank the authorities and our partners in both the US and Greece for their support of the new route.”
