United Adds New Direct Flights to Coastal Vacation Destinations

United Airlines announced today the addition of more than two dozen nonstop routes from the Midwest to popular coastal destinations. These new routes come just in time for the summer season. It is another sign that travelers are starting to fly again, and looking for more options outdoors.

These additions include 26 new nonstop routes between Midwest cities such as Cleveland, Cincinnati and Milwaukee and popular vacation destinations such as Hilton Head, S.C.; Pensacola, Fla.; and Portland, Maine. The airline also plans to resume more than 20 domestic routes and will start new service between Orange County, Calif., and Honolulu.

Internationally, in May United will fly more than 100% of its pre-pandemic schedule to Latin America compared to what it operated in 2019. The airline also plans to resume flights between Chicago and Tokyo Haneda, resume passenger flights between New York/Newark and Milan and Rome, and restart service between Chicago and Amsterdam. In total, United plans to operate 52% of its overall schedule compared to May 2019, whereas in May 2020 United operated 14% of its overall schedule compared to May 2019.

New Domestic Routes

Starting May 27, United will begin point-to-point service to Charleston, S.C.; Hilton Head, S.C.; Myrtle Beach, S.C.Pensacola, Fla. and Portland, Maine from seven cities such as ClevelandCincinnati and Columbus, OhioSt. Louis, Mo.Pittsburgh, Pa.Milwaukee, Wis. and Indianapolis, Ind. United plans to operate these point-to-point routes through Labor Day weekend.

Customers can experience United’s new Bombardier CRJ-550 – the world’s first 50-seater aircraft with two cabins. It has 10 first class seats, 20 Economy Plus seats, 20 standard economy seats, Wi-Fi and more legroom.

In May, United will begin offering United Premium Plus® service on select Hawaii routes, which includes a bigger, more comfortable seat and a complimentary meal. United Premium Plus will be available for customers traveling to Honolulu and Maui from Chicago and Denver and will be expanded in June to flights between Chicago and Kona, Houston and Honolulu, and New York/Newark and Maui. United allows customers with valid negative COVID-19 tests to pre-clear before departing to Hawaii so they can save time and skip document screening lines upon arrival in the islands.

This new nonstop service includes flights between Houston and Kalispell, Mont.Washington, D.C. and Bozeman, Mont.; and between Chicago and Nantucket, Mass. Overall, United plans to operate 58% of its domestic schedule compared to May 2019.
