United Airlines has started to add three new flights to its international network, giving travellers more options for summer travel by flying directly to countries that are starting to reopen to vaccinated visitors. Starting in July, the carrier is set to offer new direct flights between Newark Liberty International Airport and Dubrovnik, Croatia, between Washington Dulles International Airport and Athens, Greece and between Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Reykjavik, Iceland.
All three flights are subject to government approval. The addition of these new routes reflects an increase in interest among United’s customers in the last month. Searches on the website for flights to Croatia, Greece and Iceland are also up 61 per cent. Patrick Quayle, Vice President of International Network and Alliances, United said in a statement that as countries around the world begin the process of reopening, leisure travellers are eager to take a long-awaited getaway to new international destinations. He mentioned that the three new routes will unlock the natural beauty of the outdoors for guests and are the latest example of how United is remaining nimble in rebuilding our network.
