United's Europe Expansion Continues


United Airlines has announced this week more services from the US to Europe as they continue to expand their Euro route network.   


The American airline will launch new direct services next year to four popular destinations in Europe, including Reykjavik, Iceland, Porto, Portugal, Edinburgh, Scotland, and Zurich, Switzerland. 

United's 2018 summer schedule offers more options for United customers from more than 100 North American cities to conveniently connect to Europe with just one stop in New York/Newark, San Francisco or Washington/Dulles hubs. Some routes are subject to government approval. 




"As we continue growing our global route network we are offering more choice and convenience to travel internationally, something our customers have told us they want," said Patrick Quayle, United's vice president of International Network. "The new seasonal summer flights offer customers, even more, opportunities to plan summer travel to four of Europe's most beautiful cities."

In addition to United's new summer offerings to Iceland, Portugal, Scotland and Switzerland, the airline will start daily service between Los Angeles and Singapore and between New York/Newark and Buenos Aires in October 2017 and in January 2018, will begin daily nonstop service between Houston and Sydney.
