Post COVID-19: United Airlines Adds 25,000 Flights in August
As travel demands begin to pick up, United Airlines is tripling the size of its August schedule compared to its June 2020 schedule.
The airline is adding nearly 25,000 domestic and international flights compared to July 2020, and plans to fly 40% of its overall schedule in August, as compared to August 2019.
United plans to add more than 350 daily flights from its U.S. hubs in August, including doubling the number of flights from New York/Newark compared to July.
This increase includes more flights to mountain and national park destinations like Aspen, Colorado; Bangor, Maine; Bozeman, Montana; and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Internationally, United will fly 25% of its schedule. Across the Atlantic, United will add more flights and options to Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Munich, Paris, Zurich and beyond.
United has overhauled its cleaning and safety procedures under United CleanPlus and is giving customers more flexibility when booking by extending its waiver of change fees to July 31.
