United Airlines announced a major expansion to its international network.  The Chicago-based carrier will add new non-stop service to Africa, India, and Hawaii.

The carrier will introduce non-stop service linking Chicago and New Delhi in December, and add non-stop service between San Francisco and Bangalore in the spring, at which time it will also add service from its New York area hub to Johannesburg. Other new routes to Africa include Washington, D.C. to Accra, Ghana, and Lagos.

“With these new routes, United will offer more nonstop service to India and South Africa than any other U.S. carrier,” the airline said in a statement.

The airline is also adding new flights between Chicago and Kona and between its New York area hub and Maui next summer.

The new international routes are subject to government approval, which the airline expects will happen in the next few weeks.  Tickets will be available for purchase at that time.
