After more than a year, Dubai-based carrier Emirates has confirmed it will be resuming the popular Fifth Freedom flight between Athens and New York Newark.
The airline is now looking to step up its network and has resumed flights to ten destinations in the US as it aims to operate its full network by summer.
From June 1st, Emirates will connect Dubai with New York with a stopover in Athens. This means that the current US network continues to grow.
Emirates will operate daily flights between Athens and Newark on a Boeing 777-300ER. Emirates takes off from Dubai at 10:00 a.m. and lands in Athens at 3:00 p.m. After a two-hour stay, Emirates flies on to New York.
The flights are integrated into the flight plan as follows:
- EK209 | Athens – New York Newark | Departure: 5:35 p.m. Arrival: 9:20 p.m.
- EK210 | New York Newark – Athens | Departure: 11:55 p.m. Arrival: 4:05 p.m. (the following day)
“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.” said the airline in a statement on its website.
