Emirates is ramping up its flights to New York’s JFK Airport next year with the launch of a fourth daily service from Dubai on an Airbus A380 aircraft.
From March 8 2015, the superjumbo takes to the skies with 14 first class suites and 76 business class beds on the upper deck, and 399 economy seats on the main deck.
EK207 will depart Dubai at 2:50pm for an evening arrival into Kennedy Airport at 8:35pm that evening, with the return EK208 flight pushing back at 4:30pm for a 1:15pm touchdown in Dubai the following afternoon.
“New York is one of our busiest and most popular routes in the United States,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional SVP, Commercial Operations - West.
“Once in the US, our partnership with JetBlue adds even more seamless connectivity onto their network of 65 destinations from JFK.”
