United Airlines is going to add new and returning routes in this October. It is allowing the airline to fly 40% of its full flight schedule compared to the previous year, a 6% increase compared to what it plans to fly in September, 2020.

United Airlines said that it plans to resume domestic flights for eight routes to Hawaii, pending approval of the state’s pre-arrival COVID-19 testing program, which will allow the airline to fly at 46% of its full domestic flight schedule in October compared to the previous year, an 8% increase compared with September.

United Airlines will resume or start new service on nearly 50 routes, including 37 routes from United’s Chicago, Denver and Houston hubs. It will also resume service between Los Angeles and Eugene, Medford and Redmond/Bend in Oregon and resume additional service to Florida, including Washington-Dulles to Sarasota and Miami, and Denver to Fort Myers.

Meanwhile, United Airlines will add international flights to cities in Mexico, Central America and South America and fly at 33% of its international flight schedule in October compared to the previous year, up 4% compared to September.

The new international routes include Bogota, Colombia; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Lima, Peru and Panama City, Panama. The airline will also restore or increase service to Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Mexico City. In addition, it will increase service from New York/Newark to Tel Aviv to twice daily and resume service between Washington, D.C. and Tel Aviv three times a week starting October 25, 2020.

United Airlines also plans to add more flights on days popular with leisure travellers who are looking to get a head start on long weekend getaways.

Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of domestic network planning, said in a statement on Friday that they continue to be data-driven and realistic in our approach to rebuilding they network. Because October is typically a slower month for leisure travel, they are adjusting our schedules to reflect these seasonal changes in customer demand while resuming service or adding capacity on routes where they are seeing increased customer demand for travel.
