United Airlines said that it will begin seasonal service between Chicago, Illinois, and Edinburgh, Scotland, starting May 22, 2014 and ending October 5, pending government approval. The flights will operate using Boeing 757-200 aircraft.
The nonstop service will operate five times a week between May 22 and June 11, daily between June 12 and September 1, and four times weekly between September 2 and October 5.
Flights will depart United’s hub at Chicago O’Hare at 6:00 p.m. and arrive in Edinburgh at 7:45 a.m. the next day. Flights from Edinburgh to Chicago will depart at 10:25 a.m. and arrive at 1:00 p.m. the same day.
The Boeing 575-200 aircraft are configured with 169 seats, 16 of which are lie-flat. Of the 153 in the United Economy cabin, 45 are Economy Plus seats with increased legroom and personal space.
Last week, United announced it will begin nonstop service between Indianapolis and San Francisco on January 7, 2014. The service will operate using Airbus A319 aircraft.
