“We’ve built an unparalleled global network and we continuously look for opportunities to make United the first choice for travellers booking flights to Europe and beyond,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network.

“Whether customers are travelling for business or leisure, United offers more choice than ever before to connect to the places, people and moments that matter most.”

Beginning 30 March 2019, United will be the only US carrier to offer non-stop services between San Francisco and Amsterdam. Currently, United operates daily, year-round services between Amsterdam and Chicago, Houston, New York/Newark and Washington Dulles.

From 6 June, the airline will add a non-stop seasonal service between New York/Newark and Prague.

“During the first seven months of 2018, there was an 82 per cent year-on-year increase in the number of passengers on regular scheduled flights to the USA and Canada,” said Vaclav Rehor, chairman of the Prague Airport Board of Directors.

“We can thus expect that, upon the launch of the new Newark connection, there will be additional significant growth observed.”

United will also be the only US carrier to have non-stop service to Naples. The seasonal route will be operated from 22 May 2019 to 4 October 2019.

Next year United will resume non-stop seasonal service between eight US airports and more than 20 destinations in Europe, the Caribbean and Mexico including popular destinations like Porto, Portugal; Reykjavik, Iceland; Athens, Greece and Venice, Italy. The carrier will also begin the only nonstop service between Washington Dulles and Tel Aviv.
