United Airlines said Friday that it plans to resume service on 25 international routes in September as a recovery in travel continues to appear to stall.

The airline said it will fly approximately 30% of its September 2020 international schedule, compared to the same period in 2019, a five-point increase over August.  Overall, it will fly 37% of its schedule compared to 2019, with a 4% increase in capacity compared to what is currently planned for August of this year.  United will fly 40% of its domestic schedule as compared to September 2019.

United said it determined which routes to restart by “closely monitoring customer demand and flying where people want to go.”

The list of routes to be restarted includes flights to Asia, India, Australia, Israel, and Latin America.  The list of routes includes brand-new service linking Chicago and Tel Aviv, and a resumption of service linking Chicago with Amsterdam, Houston with Amsterdam and Frankfurt, and San Francisco and Munich. United will also increase service between Chicago and Frankfurt and San Francisco and London.

In addition, United will restart thrice-weekly service between Los Angeles and Sydney and regular service between Chicago and Hong Kong.

Other routes that will be restarted include service from Houston to Aguascalientes, Tampico, and Veracruz in Mexico, and service linking Newark  and Houston to Costa Rico.

Finally, the airline said it will restart service from Denver to Cabo San Lucas.
