United Airlines to Increase Nonstop Flights from Dublin to New York/Newark
United Airlines has announced an increase in flights from Dublin to its New York/Newark hub from once to twice daily, starting 24 April 2022. The additional year-round service joins United’s existing seasonal nonstop service from Dublin to Chicago, as well as seasonal nonstop services from Dublin to Washington Dulles and Shannon to New York/Newark that are planned to resume in 2022.
The additional flight from Dublin is part of United’s largest transatlantic expansion in its history announced today, including 10 new routes and five new destinations – Amman, Jordan; Bergen, Norway; Azores, Portugal; Mallorca, Spain and Tenerife in the Spanish Canary Islands. All of the new routes, which are set to begin in Spring 2022, are not served by any other North American carrier. Additionally, next year, United will add new flights to five popular European destinations – Berlin, Dublin, Milan, Munich and Rome, as well as launch seven routes that were interrupted due to the pandemic from Bangalore, Frankfurt, Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, Nice and Zurich. Flights are subject to government approval.
