On Wednesday (March 31, 2021), Emirates announced the reopening of year-round connectivity between Europe and the U.S. with the resumption of flights between Milan-Malpensa and New York-JFK. The service will be an extension of the carriers existing service to Milan (EK205) and the flights will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER, configured with eight First Class seats, 42 Business Class lie-flat seats and 304 comfortable, ergonomically-designed Economy seats. The new route will increase Emirates’ service to and from JFK to three times daily.


Emirates flight EK205 will depart Dubai at 09:45 and arrive in Milan at 14:20. The flight then departs Milan at 16:10 and arrives at New York-JFK at 19:00 the same day. The return flight (EK206) departs JFK at 22:20 and arrives in Milan at 12:15 the next day. EK206 departs Milan at 14:05 and arrives in Dubai at 22:10 (all times local). Emirates has recently reaffirmed their commitment to the U.S. market with the resumption of service to 11 gateways including Orlando and Newark from June 2021. The resumed Dubai-Milan-JFK route will provide seamless U.S. connectivity for guests traveling from Europe, the Middle East, West Asia and Africa via Emirates’ codeshare agreement with JetBlue.


Emirates’ guests requiring a COVID-19 PCR test prior to departure from Dubai can receive special pricing at clinics across Dubai by presenting their ticket or boarding pass. Home testing is also available, with results in 48 hours.


Emirates has safely restarted flights to over 90 destinations and the carrier’s Dubai hub remains one of the world’s most popular holiday stopover destinations. From pristine sun-soaked beaches and scuba diving to heritage activities and world-class hospitality, spa and leisure facilities, Dubai has something to offer for all guests. Additionally, Dubai was one of the world’s first cities to receive the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) for their effective measures to ensure the health and safety of visitors.


Customers purchasing tickets for travel on or before September 30, 2021 will enjoy generous rebooking terms and options if their plans change due to unexpected COVID-19 related flight or travel restrictions, including the ability to change travel dates or extend ticket validity for up to two years. The carrier has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the guest journey to ensure the health and wellbeing of their guests and team members. Emirates also distributes complimentary hygiene kits which include masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes.
