United Airlines seeks to start Newark - Shanghai route

United Airlines has outlined its plans for services to Shanghai Pudong from Newark Liberty Airport after submitting a formal application to the US. Department of Transportation (DOT) earlier this week. If approved, United's second daily flight will create new opportunities for customers to conveniently connect to Shanghai from more than 90 U.S. and Canadian destinations served by United from New York/Newark with the new route
starting in 2020.

"Our application for a second daily flight between New York/Newark and Shanghai is in response to the demand for travel between each country's financial centre, which has grown annually for the last several years," said Oscar Munoz, United's Chief Executive Officer. "If approved, this additional flight will help facilitate the development of increased business and tourism, provide additional capacity for customers and further enhance United's position both as the airline of choice to China and our hub at Newark Liberty International Airport as the premier East Coast gateway to Asia."
