Emirates, a world leader in airline
luxury since its founding in 1985, will add a second daily non-stop A340-500
flight from North America to Dubai on November 7, due to the unprecedented
success of the initial non-stop service between the two cities introduced in
June of 2004.Operating out of the ultra-modern Terminal 4 at JFK, the new daily EK 204
outbound flight will depart at 9:10am and arrive in Dubai at 6:50am the next
day. The return flight, EK 203, will depart Dubai at 1:30am every morning and
land in New York at 7:10am the same day.
The world’s fastest-growing intercontinental airline offers the only non-
stop A340-500 service from New York (JFK) to Dubai International Airport
(U.A.E.). The existing Emirates’ service between the two cities, EK 202,
departs daily at 11:30pm and arrives in Dubai at 8:20pm the following day. The
return flight EK 201 departs Dubai at 8:00am every morning and arrives in JFK
at 2:10 pm the same day.
“North America is an important market for Emirates. Our move to increase
flights is a direct result of strong customer demand for Emirates’ passenger
and cargo services, and it signals our commitment and confidence in the growth
of the market,” said Nigel Page, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial
Operations, The Americas.
“With flights that depart in both the morning and the evening, Emirates
will provide greater service and access for business and leisure travelers
from North America to the Middle East and destinations beyond.”
The non-stop service enables passengers from New York to connect in Dubai
to other destinations in Africa, the Indian sub-continent and Asia Pacific and
reduce layover and overall flying times.
