United Airlines to add more international routes in September
On Monday, United Airlines (UAL.O) announced that it would continue adding more flights for international routes in September. The airline company plans to reintroduce flights that were canceled due to coronavirus pandemic.
United Airlines would have flight services between Chicago and Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Sydney, and new non-stop flights between Chicago and Tel Aviv.
The Chicago-based airline company stated last week that it intends to add 25,000 more domestic and international flights in August. United Airlines added that it also plans to resume flights in China.
“We’re adding in flights to places we know customers want to travel to, like island and mountain destinations where social distancing is easier,” United’s Vice President of Domestic Network Planning Ankit Gupta said in a statement.
United Airlines said that those customers who feel uncomfortable flying on full planes have the option to rebook or receive travel credits.
