On June 1, 2021, Emirates Airline will be resuming daily services to Newark via Athens, providing travellers with another access point to the popular New York Metropolitan area.
This news will benefit the large Greek-American community in the US while offering a convenient connection to travellers to the Middle East, West Asia and Africa via Dubai.
The addition of Newark via Athens will push the Dubai-based carrier’s 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 (March 2, 2021).
The Dubai-Athens-Newark route will be operated daily by a three-class Boeing 777-300ER, complementing Emirates’ double daily flights to New York (JFK) as the airline continues to expand across North America.
Flight EK209 will depart Dubai at 10:50, arriving in Athens at 15:00 before departing again at 17:35 and arriving at Newark Liberty International Airport at 21:20 on the same day.
The return flight, EK210, will depart Newark at 23:55, arriving in Athens at 16:05 the next day. EK210 will depart once again from Athens the next day at 18:05 bound for Dubai, where it will arrive at 23:35.
