Emirates will launch a direct service between Milan and New York from October 25th. Operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, the flight will be an extension to one of Emirates’ existing three daily, Dubai-Milan flights. ENAC (Italian Civil Aviation Authority) has authorised the services on an extra-bilateral basis.
Emirates President Tim Clark said operating a trans-Atlantic route has been on its agenda for some time. “The route is currently underserved, particularly with a strong premium product offering – this is where we see a clear opening,” he said. “We intend to capitalise on this opportunity, stimulating further demand and encouraging additional traffic flow in both directions.”
In addition to passenger services, Emirates SkyCargo will offer a total of 38 tonnes of freight capacity between both cities each day.
