United Airlines has announced a new international expansion to Europe with three new long-haul routes to two existing destinations and a brand-new destination. These new routes take advantage of countries reopening to vaccinated travelers
Patrick Quayle, vice president of international network and alliances:
“As countries around the world begin the process of reopening, leisure travelers are eager to take a long-awaited getaway to new international destination. These three new routes unlock the natural beauty of the outdoors for our guests. They are also the latest example of how United is remaining nimble in rebuilding our network.”
- United Airlines is expanding to Croatia with nonstop service from its Newark (EWR) hub to Dubrovnik (DBV). Flights will operate three times a week using the Boeing 767-300ER, running from July 8 through October 3.
- United Airlines will offer the only nonstop flight from the U.S. to Croatia after American Airlines ended its Philadelphia to Dubrovnik route last year.
- United Airlines is adding its second route into Greece with a flight from Washington-Dulles (IAD) to Athens (ATH). Flights will operate with a daily Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, running from July 1 through October 3.
- United already serves Athens from Newark. This seasonal route resumes in June.
- U.S. airlines continue to expand Iceland service. Following Delta’s announcement to launch its new Boston to Reykjavik flight, United is ready to add its next route into Iceland with Chicago (ORD) to Reykjavik (KEF).
- Flights operate daily with the Boeing 757-200, running from July 1 through October 3.
