United Airlines to Expand Trans-Atlantic Routes in 2022
United Airlines is taking off to more destinations next year in a post-pandemic travel recovery.
United Airlines will take off to five new destinations as it expands its trans-Atlantic routes. The US airline said from May 2022 it will start flying between Washington D.C. and Jordan's capital Amman, New York and the Azores, and New York-Bergen, Norway's second largest city.
It will start flights from New York to Spain's Balearic and Canary Islands in June. US airlines report a surge in bookings since the White House announced Covid-19 travel restrictions would be eased on foreign travellers from November.
Busiest ever summer
Anticipating a surge in pent-up travel demand, United Airlines is also planning to add more flights to Dublin, Berlin, Munich, Milan and Rome. And it is upbeat about the outlook for the future. "We're confident that bookings across the trans-Atlantic will be the best that they've been," said Patrick Quayle, the senior vice president of international network and alliances at United.
