Emirates launches daily New York (Newark) to Athens flight

Emirates is excited to announce today it will launch a new daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport to the Greek capital city of Athens, starting on 12 March 2017.

The new route complements Emirates’ existing four daily flights between New York’s JFK airport and Dubai, by offering global travelers with another convenient access point from the popular New York Metropolitan area with the following schedule:                                         


EK210 Departure Newark at 23:45 local time, arrival Athens 15:05 (*next day)
EK210 Departure Athens at 17:10, arrival Dubai 23:50


EK209 Departure Dubai at 10:50 local time, arrival Athens at 14:25
EK209 Departure Athens at 16:40, arrival Newark at 22:00 on the same day.


Emirates’ new Newark-Athens-Dubai flight will also provide the only year-round non-stop daily service between the United States and Greece – a service that does not exist today and has not existed since 2012.  Emirates will operate a wide-body Boeing 777-300ER on the route, offering 8 seats in First, 42 seats in Business and 304 seats in Economy class.  Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will offer high levels of comfort and high quality service, with Emirates being the only airline on the route to offer private suites in First class.

This flight will be facilitating convenient onward connections beyond Athens to the Greek islands, including Corfu, Santorini and Mykonos as well as select European destinations such as Bucharest, Sofia and Tirana.

The new daily service from Newark Liberty International Airport, Terminal B to Dubai offers the perfect convenient alternative to customers commuting and traveling from the New Jersey and Philadelphia region. The availability of the new one-stop same-plane service also provides these customers a convenient connection to Dubai and our global network including the Middle East, West Asia, Africa and beyond.

In addition, our First and Business Class passengers can enjoy complimentary Chauffeur-drive service within a 60 mile radius of Newark Liberty International Airport. Further information about Emirates’ Chauffeur Drive Service can be found here.
