At the beginning of the year, Emirates announced that it would be restarting three of its suspended US routes in the first quarter of this year and that it would be boosting services to New York and Los Angeles as well. Now, the Middle Eastern carrier has confirmed that it will be continuing to bring back suspended services and that it will resurrect its route to Newark (via Athens) in June.
As things stand, Emirates offers non-stop services between Dubai and six major US cities.

Countries like the US and UK may still be struggling with huge coronavirus infection rates but some parts of the world are starting to see a bit of normality returning.

With Dubai now open to more visitors than at any other time in the past 6 months, Emirates has decided to bring back its 'Dubai Connect' offer for passengers transiting through Dubai who have a long layover between flights.
For the upcoming Northern Hemisphere winter, Emirates has only been able to justify scheduling its Airbus A380s on 7 of its routes, and for an airline with well over a hundred such aircraft in its fleet, that's an issue. Now, in the latest update to its Summer 2021 schedule, Emirates is looking a bit more optimistic as it prepares to increase the number of routes on which it plans to operate the world's largest passenger aircraft.
Emirates operates the largest fleet of Airbus A380 aircraft in the world and it's safe to say that without the investment Emirates put into the A380 program, the aircraft would have gone out of production a lot earlier than this year. Still, even a behemoth like Emirates isn't immune to the current travel crisis and few things highlight that fact better than the airline's plans for the Winter 2020/21 season which will see it operating its A380 on just seven international routes.
