United Airline will now fly its biggest schedule since the pandemic hit to cope with increased summer travel demands in June. The airline is increasing it daily flights by greater than 480 to its US schedule to provide an average of 3,100 domestic flights to about 240 locations around the US.
The new destinations added to these flights include Hawaii, Alaska and Montana. In essence, United Airlines will now resume 60% of its domestic network and 67% of its overall network when compared to the 2019 schedule.
United Airline plans to add 9 more locations to it’s new flight paths in June, one of which would be daily flights from Denver to West Yellowstone, Mont.
Moreover, United also expects to add two new direct flights to Hawaii, From Chicago to Kona and New York/Newark to Maui.
Also, as travel to Alaska peaks, United will offer flights for Chicago to Fairbanks and flights from Chicago, Houston, New York to Anchorage.
United will also provide flights between Fairbank and Anchorage in June.
“As leisure travel continues to return this summer, we are adding more flights to our June schedule to national parks, Alaska, Hawaii, Florida and other popular destinations,” said Ankit Gupta, vice president of domestic planning and scheduling at United. “June is historically the beginning of the peak summer travel season and ramping up to over 3,500 total daily flights across the system this June underscores the continued demand for leisure travel and our responsiveness to meeting that demand.”
Due to this pandemic, customers have been longing to visit different cities and explore. United Airlines intends on capitalizing it and increase the flights and provide customers with their much needed leisure with friends and family. That fact that last month, when United announced 26 summer flights from Midwest Cities to seven coastal destinations in the South East and New England, 5000 bookings had been made for these flights in the first 48 hours, proves that people need their free time.
But along with the travels, United also keeps the health of its passengers as a number one priority through United CleanPlus program. Clorox and Cleveland will play a definitive part in the hygiene and health procedures from check in to landing and also implemented a number of rules and regulations to promotes the passengers and employees health.
Customers can have a look at the COVID 19 entry requirements, search for local testing centers and can upload their vaccination records, for all the domestic and international flights, at United’s Travel Ready Centre.
