Emirates to Launch Second Daily Non-Stop New York-Dubai Flight on November 7

NEW YORK, July 13 /PRNewswire/ — 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.

Members of Skywards, Emirates’ frequent flyer program, can earn Skywards Miles when flying in any Class between New York and Dubai. Members flying from other destinations in the US to New York to catch the Emirates flight, can earn Miles when using Skywards partner airlines, Delta or Continental Airlines.

Since its introduction in June of 2004, Emirates’ A340-500 in-flight experience has been heralded throughout North America for its exceptional passenger services and amenities including 12 fully enclosed First Class suites with flat beds and sliding doors that can be opened or closed at will for privacy.

Other features include quieter cabins, revolutionary lighting to help reset body clocks and minimize jetlag, the world’s most advanced in-flight entertainment, with 500-plus channels, and Room Service — an Emirates first. Customers phone the galley to order meals, served at their seat at the time of their choice.

Business Class seats are laid out 2-2-2, putting everyone beside either an aisle or window, and adjust at the touch of a button. Emirates Economy also has been redesigned to make cabins quieter and more restful, with wider, more comfortable 2-4-2 seats and nine-inch personal video screens — larger than in almost every other Economy class.
