Emirates will launch a fourth daily service from its home and hub, Dubai International Airport to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York.
The new service commencing 8th March 2015., EK 207 will depart Dubai at 14:50 hours and arrive in JFK at 20:35 hours. The return flight, EK 208 will depart JFK at 16:30 hours and arrive in Dubai at 13:15 the following day.
“This new service will allow passengers the convenience of an afternoon departure from both Dubai and New York, to complement the existing morning and evening departures of our existing three services”, said Emirates’ Hubert Frach, Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations - West. “New York is one of our busiest and most popular routes in the United States. Adding this fourth service will give our passengers even more choice of connectivity when flying from any part of our global network, in particular the Far East and South Asia. Once in the US, our partnership with JetBlue adds even more seamless connectivity onto their network of 65 destinations from JFK.”
Passengers from New York will be able to enjoy convenient connections on to destinations such as Johannesburg, Nairobi, India and many cities on Emirates’ Middle East network with connection times under four hours.
Thanks to Emirates’ code-share agreement with JetBlue Airways (B6) the new fourth daily service will allow good connectivity with JetBlue flights to points across the United States and Caribbean. At JFK, JetBlue operates from its highly acclaimed Terminal 5, while Emirates operates from the adjacent Terminal 4, allowing for fast and easy connections between flights.
