United Airlines officially launched its latest routes to Europe over the past week. With these launches, United will be flying to over 114 international cities this summer.

These flights include the following routes:

  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) to Barcelona–El Prat Airport (BCN)
  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) to Shannon Airport (SNN)
  • Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport (AGP)
  • Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN)
  • San Francisco International Airport to Rome Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci Airport (FCO)
  • Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER)

Flights from Chicago to Barcelona, Spain will be operated on a Boeing 787-8 and flown daily. United’s flights to Shannon, Ireland will  employ a Boeing 757-200 and be flown daily for the summer.

With all of the new additions, Newark has become the US airport with service to the most destinations in Europe. The two new routes to Stockholm, Sweden (an old Continental route) and to Málaga, Spain both are flown on Boeing 757-200s.

From San Francisco, United is now flying direct to Rome, Italy. The carrier is the sole one flying this route and its using a Boeing 777-200ER for the daily service. ITA Airways is launching some competition next month when it connects Rome and San Francisco.

Finally, United launched service to Berlin, Germany out of Washington DC on May 26th. (I covered that launch here.) The daily service is on a Boeing 767-400.

Anthony’s Take: Demand for summer travel to Europe is at an all-time high and United is offering more nonstop service (especially to leisure destinations and secondary cities) than any other US carrier. Now, if they could only improve Polaris catering a bit more.
