United to Connect Two Global Tech Centers with Direct Flights Between San Francisco and Dublin

United becomes only U.S. carrier to offer customers nonstop service to Ireland from West Coast


Travelling between the Silicon Valley and Dublin, Ireland – two of the world's leading centres of technology and innovation – will soon get a lot easier. Today United Airlines announced that it will launch new daily nonstop service from its hub at San Francisco International Airport to the Irish capital beginning June 5, 2020. United will be the only U.S. airline to offer daily flights direct to Dublin from the West Coast.

"Dublin and the Silicon Valley are two regions synonymous with big tech," said Patrick Quayle, United's Vice President of International Network. "Many global tech companies have a major footprint in both regions, and they need a carrier with an extensive worldwide network to help conveniently connect their business. As the only U.S. airline to serve Ireland from the West Coast, United is uniquely suited to provide the connectivity these companies and economies need to continue thriving."



United will operate its new San Francisco-Dublin daily nonstop flights with the fuel-efficient Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. With the launch of this new service, United will have more daily business class seats between Dublin and the U.S. this summer than any other domestic airline.
