More Direct Flights from Athens to New York

ATHENS — A special event was held at Athens International Airport on Tuesday marking Emirates air carrier's June 1 launch of its daily direct flights from Athens to New York's Newark Liberty International Airport.

The event was attended by United Arab Emirates Ambassador to Greece Sulaiman Al Mazroui and Emirates Director for Greece & Albania Khalid Al Zarooni.

With this new air connection between Greece and the US, "Greek trade and consumers' movement are facilitated, and tourism is actively supported," noted Al Zarooni.
