United customers get to choose between direct flights from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey to Dubrovnik, Croatia; Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia to Athens, Greece; and Chicago O’Hare International Airport in Illinois to Reykjavik, Iceland. Each flight will reportedly be subject to government approval.
“As countries around the world begin the process of reopening, leisure travelers are eager to take a long-awaited getaway to new international destinations,” United’s Vice President of International Network and Alliances Patrick Quayle said, in a statement.
“These three new routes unlock the natural beauty of the outdoors for our guests,” Quayle added. “They are also the latest example of how United is remaining nimble in rebuilding our network.”
Previously, United had announced the airline added flights that will travel to major cities in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa and India starting in May. The airline also said it would resume service to Tel Aviv, Israel; Rome and Milan, Italy; Munich, Germany; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Tokyo, Japan; and Tahiti, French Polynesia.
United’s expanded and resumed flight routes are a response to the “increased demand” it has observed among international travelers.
