United Airlines announced plans to increase its transatlantic service in 2023

The Chicago-based airline will resume flights from its hub at Newark Liberty International Airport to Sweden, add flights to Dubai, and add new seasonal summer service from Newark to Malaga, Spain.

United says it will “fly to more destinations across the Atlantic than all other U.S,. carriers combined.”

The airline will also discontinue service from Newark to Bergen, Norway.

In all, transatlantic flying will be up 30% in the summer of 2023 compared to 2019, prior to the start of the pandemic.

“We expect another busy summer for international travel and are proud to build on our industry-leading global network to offer our customers the widest range of destinations and most convenient travel options,” said Patrick Quayle, the airline’s vice president of global network planning.

United will also operate nine routes it added last summer including non-stop flights from Newark to Nice, from Denver to Munich, from Boston to London, and from Chicago to Zürich and Milan.  It will also service four destinations not served by any other U.S. carrier, Amman, Jordan; Azores, Portugal; Palma de Mallorca, Spain; and Tenerife, Spain.
