United Airlines will resume not stop air services from Scotland in March

 Friday, December 3, 2021 


United Airlines will resume daily nonstop services from Scotland to the US in March next year, making it the first carrier to reinstate flights between the two nations.

From 5 March it will resume year-round daily flights between Edinburgh and New York Newark and from 7 May it will restart its daily seasonal services from Edinburgh to Chicago and Washington DC.

All flights will be operated by Boeing 757-200 aircraft with 15 flatbed Polaris seats, 45 economy plus seats, and 108 economy seats.

Edinburgh to New York flights depart the Scottish capital at 0940 and arrive in the Big Apple at 1220, with the return flight departing Newark at 2020 and landing in Edinburgh at 0805 the following day.

Bob Schumacher, United’s director sales UK and Ireland said that they are delighted to return to Scotland in 2022 and resume nonstop services from Edinburgh to the United States. With the return of services, our customers in Edinburgh can once again take advantage of direct connections to the US, as well as an unrivalled route network from United’s hubs at New York Newark, Chicago and Washington DC.

Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s chief executive, added that it is incredibly exciting to be resuming our transatlantic services with United to allow direct travel between Scotland and the USA for the first time in two years.

At the end of October, United Airlines announced that it plans to operate 22 daily services from London Heathrow to US destinations by the spring.
