United announced its largest transatlantic expansion in history on October 14th, with ten new flights and five new destinations: Amman, Jordan; Bergen, Norway; Azores, Portugal; Palma de Mallorca, Spain; and Tenerife, Spain. No other North American carrier will serve any of the new routes, which will commence in Spring 2022.

United will also offer new flights to five key European cities next year: Berlin, Dublin, Milan, Munich, and Rome. In addition, United will resume service on seven routes that were disrupted by the pandemic in 2022: Bangalore, Frankfurt, Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, Nice, and Zurich. Flights must be approved by the government.

Jordan, Amman

Beginning May 5, United will offer a new capital-to-capital service between Washington, D.C. and Amman, Jordan. Customers will be able to tour Jordan’s other famous locations, including Petra, the Dead Sea, and the Wadi Rum desert, as well as the numerous historical sites in and around Amman.

With service three times weekly on a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, United will be the sole North American carrier flying direct to Amman.

Azores, Portugal: Ponta Delgada

United will launch new flights between New York/Newark and Ponta Delgada in the Azores on May 13 to add a third Portuguese destination to its worldwide network.

The airline will operate the most flights between the United States and Portugal of any North American carrier, as well as being the only airline serving the Azores from the New York metro area.

United’s existing flights to Porto, which will restart in March, and Lisbon, which the airline now operates from New York/Newark and will resume from Washington, D.C. next summer, will be joined by this daily service.

United will use a brand-new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft with United’s new distinctive interior, which includes upgraded seatback entertainment with Bluetooth connectivity and overhead bin room for all passengers.

Bergen, Norway

United will commence flights between New York/Newark and Bergen on May 20, making it the sole U.S. carrier to travel to Norway. Customers will be able to explore Bergen’s surrounding mountainous environment and stunning fjords by flying three times weekly on a Boeing 757-200. United will be the only airline flying to Bergen from the United States.

Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain

United is expanding its Spanish beach vacation options with three times weekly flights from New York/Newark to Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands, which will begin on June 2 and will be operated by a Boeing 767-300ER.

This will be the first and only flight between the United States and Mallorca, complementing United’s existing Madrid and Barcelona service.

Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

With United’s new route from New York/Newark to Tenerife, travelers looking for a new beach location can visit the gorgeous black and white sand beaches of Spain’s Canary Islands.

With three flights per week beginning June 9 aboard a Boeing 757-200, United will be the only airline flying direct between the Canary Islands and North America. United will fly to more Spanish locations from North America than any other airline, including Palma de Mallorca.

In anticipation of a recovery in tourism, United is also adding flights to some of Europe’s most iconic destinations. United will add the following items in the spring:

New daily flights will connect Denver and Munich, complementing existing service between Denver and Frankfurt and London, which is set to resume in March. United is the only American airline that flies from Denver to Europe.

New daily flights from Chicago to Milan have been added to the current seasonal flights from Chicago to Rome. United will be the only airline to fly directly from Chicago to Milan, complementing its existing service from New York/Newark to Milan.
