United Airlines will fly to Dubrovnik, Athens and Reykjavik from July 1
United Airlines will fly to Dubrovnik, Athens and Reykjavik from July 1. United Airlines will add three new destinations to its international network, hoping to meet the needs of American tourists looking for a summer vacation in Europe.
Starting in July, the US carrier will offer non-stop flights from Newark Liberty (EWR) to Dubrovnik (DBV) in Croatia, from Washington Dulles (IAD) to Athens (ATH) in Greece and from Chicago O'Hare ( ORD) to Reykjavik (KEF) in Iceland.
In the last month, the airline has registered searches on its website for flights to Croatia, Greece and Iceland, searches that have increased by 61%. All three countries have reopened, either for international travel or intend to do so in the coming weeks. Thus, United Airlines will fly towards Dubrovnik, Athena and Reykjavik.
United said the addition of new routes reflects an increase in customer interest.
The flight from Newark Liberty (EWR) to Dubrovnik (DBV) in Croatia will become the only non-stop flight between the USA and Croatia. The flights will start on July 8, with a frequency of 3 flights per week. The flight will be operated until October 3 with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.
United will extend the service to Athens with daily flights from Washington Dulles Airport starting July 1, with the flight operating until October 3, using Boeing 787-8 aircraft. This new route will mark the first daily non-stop flight between Washington and the Greek capital.
The race from Chicago O'Hare (ORD) to Reykjavik (KEF) in Iceland will also start on July 1. There will be daily flights until October 3, the flights being operated with Boeing 757-200 aircraft. The new service is based on the Newark Liberty - Reykjavik route, which will be resumed from June 3 and will operate until October 29.
A new daily service from Boston Logan (BOS) to Reykjavik will begin in May, with flights being operated by Boeing 757-200 aircraft. Also, daily flights from New York John F Kennedy (JFK) airports will resume and Minneapolis-Saint Paul (MSP).
In late March, Delta Air Lines announced plans to increase the frequency of flights to Iceland, after the country became the first in Europe to announce that it would allow vaccinated or immunized Americans to enter.
