Emirates Again Increases Frequency to NY

Emirates Again Increases Frequency to New York With New Service Via Hamburg

Emirates will increase flights from Dubai to New York to three times a day with a new service via Hamburg from October 29 this year. The service also increases capacity on its recently launched Dubai to Hamburg route.

Emirates launched services to John F Kennedy airport in New York in June 2004 and boosted its services to twice daily in November last year. The airline also launched a daily service to Hamburg in March of this year. Both routes have proved extremely popular and there is such a high demand for Emirates' services to JFK that the airline is now able to offer increased flights to North America with this new service between Dubai and JFK via Hamburg.

There are connections to and from New York with Emirates' New Zealand services at Dubai.

Direct Dubai-New York services are operated by Airbus A340-500 aircraft. Emirates will operate its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in three-class configuration on the new Dubai-Hamburg-New York route, with 12 seats in first, 42 in business and 310 in economy. The use of the 777-300ER on this route also offers a significant increase in both passenger and cargo capacity to Emirates on the Dubai to Hamburg route which only launched in March and has thus far been operated by Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline and Group, said: "This is a great opportunity for Emirates to carry passengers from Hamburg to New York. We already offer non-stop services to both cities but demand has been so high that we are happy to be able to increase our services to JFK and offer greater capacity to Hamburg.

"It is a testament to our quality of service and worldwide network, that we have increased services to New York from one to three flights a day in the space of a little over two years, as well as the need to increase capacity on our recently launched Hamburg service so quickly."
