Emirates to fly Milan–New York from October

News Monday, 08 April 2013 15:18 Written by 

Connecting with one of its current services from Dubai, Emirates will fly a daily B777-300ER from Milan Malpensa (MXP) to New York (JFK) from October 1.

Emirates said the flight would offer connections across the US, including to the West Coast through the carrier’s partnership with JetBlue.

 

Flight EK205 will depart Dubai at 9.05am, arriving in Milan at 1.50pm, then leave Milan at 4pm, arriving in New York at 7pm the same day.

 

From New York, EK206 will take off from New York at 10.20pm, arriving at Milan at 12:15pm the next day, then leave at 2pm to touch down in Dubai at 10.05pm.

 

The route is already flown by American Airlines with B767-300s, Alitalia with A330s, and Delta with B767-400s.

 

“Operating a trans-Atlantic route has been on our agenda for some time,” said Emirates president Tim Clark.

 

“Having carefully monitored traffic flows we have identified strong demand for both a direct connection and, importantly, for the Emirates product. The route is currently underserved, particularly with a strong premium product offering – this is where we see a clear opening for Emirates.”

 

As well as its 9.05am service from Dubai, Emirates also flies to Malpensa at 3.40am with an A330-200 and at 4.10pm with a B777-300.
