United Airlines to take off with new service this spring
For the first time in its company’s history, United Airlines will offer flights to Africa. Starting May 2, travelers will be able to fly from Washington Dulles to Accra, Ghana. The aircraft will
continue on to Lagos, Nigeria before heading back to Accra and DC.
Another new and interesting destination that will be added to United’s lineup on is service to Bahrain starting April 18. Passengers flying on a nonstop Washington Dulles-Kuwait flight will now have the option to continue on to the “Kingdom of the Two Seas.”
Finally, United announced new non-stop service that will allow you to fly from Chicago to Brussels beginning March 28. United is the largest carrier at Chicago’s O’Hare and this new route will make it extremely convenient for travelers looking to fly to and from many cities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
Kevin Knight, United’s senior vice president of planning, stated in a press release that the airline was excited to offer travelers “convenient and comfortable travel opportunities” and added that the new routes were consistent with next year’s capacity outlook and “reflect the continuing optimization of the airline’s international network.”
