Gulf carrier Emirates plans to resume its direct service from Milan Malpensa to New York JFK fom 1 June.
The Milan-New York JFK flight will be an extension to Emirates’ existing flights to Milan, operated by the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, with eight seats in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business and 304 seats in Economy class.
The airline’s service to and from New York JFK will increase to three times daily to support the newly resumed link.
Emirates has recently announced resumption of flights to Orlando and Newark in June, taking the number of routes to 11 US gateways.
The resumed service between Dubai-Milan-JFK will offer more choice to travellers heading from Europe, the Middle East, West Asia, and Africa via Dubai or Milan as well as easy access to other US cities beyond New York via codeshare partner JetBlue.
Emirates has implemented various health and safety measures including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
