Emirates announced on February 22 that it will resume daily service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Athens, beginning June 1, 2021.
The resumed flight will provide global travelers with another access point to the popular New York Metropolitan area, serving the large Greek American community in the United States while offering a convenient connection to travelers 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 2nd March).
The Dubai-Athens-Newark flight will operate daily with a three-class Boeing 777-300ER, complementing Emirates’ double daily flights to New York (JFK) as the airline continues to expand across North America.
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.
Emirates flight EK209 will depart Dubai at 1050hrs, arriving in Athens at 1500hrs before departing again at 1735hrs and arriving into Newark Liberty International Airport at 2120hrs on the same day.
The return flight EK210 will depart Newark at 2355 hrs, arriving in Athens at 1605hrs the next day. EK210 will depart once again from Athens the next day at 1805hrs bound for Dubai where it will arrive at 2335 hrs (all times are local).
Emirates joins American Airlines in boosting consumer-confidence by adding a new non-stop flight from JFK Airport in New York City.
