United Airlines announced it will increase the number of flights it operates and destinations served next month, compared to the current month, as flyers begin to slowly return to the friendly skies as the coronavirus pandemic somewhat wanes.

Come July, the airline’s international capacity will be 25% of what it was in the same period last year.  It will increase the number of flights to Europe from its hubs in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., restart service to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Seoul, and expand service to Latin America and the Caribbean.

The airline will also increase its transborder service to Canada, resuming flights to Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.

On the domestic side, the airline’s capacity will be 30% what it was last July, versus 13% in June 2020 compared to the same month last year. This includes the addition of 140 non-stop flights, with a focus on major cities such as Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Seattle, as well as with the addition of the addition of leisure destinations including Las Vegas, which recently welcomed back gamblers, and Charleston, South Carolina.
