United Airlines this week celebrated its return to New York’s JFK Airport after a five-year hiatus.
United is returning to JFK with direct service to both Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The carrier will operate roundtrip flights from JFK to each city once daily, five days a week, with plans to double the service as demand increases.
With the news, United now offers service from all three major New York City airports, JFK, Newark, and LaGuardia.
"United's return to JFK reflects not only our strong commitment to the New York City area, but also to increasing service to and from the places our customers want to fly," said Ankit Gupta, Vice President of Domestic Network Planning and Scheduling.
"With the addition of JFK, United now offers unmatched service, greater convenience, more choice, and a best-in-class product for travelers throughout the New York City region as they return to the skies."
"We're happy to welcome United Airlines back to Kennedy Airport," said Charles Everett, General Manager of John F. Kennedy International Airport. "We remain committed to providing the highest level of safety, accessibility, and ease of travel for all of the passengers who use the Port Authority's airport facilities and United's decision is a great step in that direction."
