United Airlines is adding more than 400 daily flights to its July schedule and increasing service to reopened European destinations.
The move marks United's largest monthly schedule since before the pandemic. United plans to fly 80% of its U.S. schedule compared to July of 2019, with bookings for summer travel are up 214% compared to 2020 levels.
In the U.S., United will add new routes to Bozeman, MT; Orange County, CA; Raleigh, N.C and Yellowstone/Cody, WY. The airline is also adjusting its flight times at its hubs at Chicago O'Hare International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport.
United is resuming and adding new routes and increasing its domestic network by 17% compared to its June schedule.
Internationally, United is adding an additional weekly flight to Dubrovnik, Croatia from New York/Newark and operating a larger aircraft to Athens, Greece.
United will resume daily service to Athens from New York/Newark in June, and in July will use a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft which includes United Premium Plus seats, joining new service to Athens from Washington D.C. which will begin in July.
“As we start to see a strong desire from our customers to travel internationally to re-opened countries, we are excited to move up service and add a fourth weekly flight to Dubrovnik, Croatia,” said Patrick Quayle, vice president of international network and alliances at United.
United said it is planning to resume service to Spain and Portugal with flights from New York/Newark to Barcelona, Lisbon and Madrid, subject to these countries re-opening to vaccinated tourists.
