According to the carrier, this year’s busiest-ever schedule aims to build on the airline’s expanded domestic network and offer customers more access than ever before from United gateways, including Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark and Washington, D.C.

The airline officially began flying the schedule on 30 March with the start of nonstop service between San Francisco and Amsterdam. With this flight, United is the only US carrier to connect customers between the Bay Area and the Netherlands.

“Today we are offering our customers more destinations than ever before, both here in the United States and overseas,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of international network.

“We are particularly excited to add our newest destinations, Naples and Prague, to our ever-growing route map.”

The only US’ nonstop connection to Naples will launch on 22 May. The anticipated service between New York/Newark and Prague will kick off on 6 June.

Beginning on 2 May, the airline will start daily nonstop service between Denver and Frankfurt, Germany — the only nonstop flight operated by a US carrier.

United will relaunch flights to popular destinations

United’s summer schedule also features the return of popular destinations including Athens in Greece, Glasgow in Scotland, Madrid and Barcelona in Spain, Rome and Venice in Italy, or Shannon in Ireland.

The carrier will also resume summer service to destinations in the Caribbean. This service will include nonstop flights between New York/Newark and Bermuda and between Houston and St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands.

Starting in June, United will offer customers seasonal service between Cancun and New Orleans, San Antonio and Austin, Texas.
