2022-10-12, kl. 14:10

United Airlines today announced the return of its nonstop daily seasonal service between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and its New York/Newark hub from 28 May 2023. The airline is returning to the Swedish capital for the first time since 2019, having previously operated the route for 14 years from 2005.

“We are excited to be back in Sweden for 2023 with the return of our service from Stockholm to New York,” said Lucas Geerts, United’s Regional Sales Manager Northern Europe. “We expect another busy summer for international travel in 2023 and are proud to build on our industry-leading global network, providing our customers in Sweden with direct access to the New York City area, as well as the possibility to conveniently connect via our New York/Newark hub to other destinations across the Americas.”

“We are delighted that United Airlines has chosen to return to Stockholm Arlanda Airport with its direct route to New York next summer,” said Elizabeth Axtelius, Director Aviation Business at Swedavia. “Travel demand to North America is high and the additional connectivity welcome. The U.S. is one of our biggest trade partners and an important market for incoming tourism as well as an attractive destination for Swedes.”

United’s return to Stockholm demonstrates the airline’s transatlantic leadership among U.S. airlines. Announced today, United’s 2023 summer schedule includes adding flights to three cities – Malaga, Spain; Stockholm, Sweden and Dubai, UAE – as well as six more flights to some of the most popular destinations in Europe: Rome, Paris, Barcelona, London, Berlin and Shannon. In total, United will fly to 37 cities in Europe, Africa, India and the Middle East next summer, more destinations than all other U.S. airlines combined. The new routes are subject to government approval.

United saw historic levels of demand for travel to Europe in the summer peak, up 20 per cent compared to 2019, and is focused on developing its network to serve continued demand strength.

Along with adding new flights, United will fly nine routes it added last summer, including direct flights between New York/Newark and Nice; Denver and Munich; Boston and London Heathrow; Chicago/O’Hare and Zurich; and Chicago/O’Hare and Milan, as well as flights to four destinations not served by any other North American airline - Amman, Jordan; Azores, Portugal; Palma de Mallorca, Spain and Tenerife, Spain.
