You can now fly straight to Newark with Emirates
We all know a flight to the US can be a long one, especially if there’s a stop-over. Well, if you’re heading to Newark, New Jersey, it may not take as long as you think.
Emirates airlines has announced a new non-stop service between Newark and Dubai, giving travellers another option to the existing service from through Athens.
There’s plenty of space, seeing as it is operated with a Boeing 777-300ER, including eight first class suites, 42 business class and 306 economy class seats, in addition to 19 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity.
As for timings, EK223 departs Dubai at 3am and arrives in Newark at 9am. The return flight, EK224, departs from Newark at 11.50am and arrives at 8.20am the following morning.
According to Emirates, the new route will allow east-bound travellers to have a stop-over day tour of Dubai before taking a connecting flight in the evening.
Emirates currently serves 12 destinations in the United States, and plans to add two flights a week each to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida, which the airline said is a reflection of a steady rebound in demand.
