United Airlines Launches New Non-stop Flights to Africa



United Airlines is set to launch new non-stop services to three destinations in Africa including Lagos in Nigeria, Accra in Ghana, and Johannesburg in South Africa.


From the spring of 2021, United will offer three-weekly flights from Washington, D.C to Lagos and Accra as well as a daily service from New York/Newark to Johannesburg.


Flights to both Lagos and Accra will be operated using a fleet of ultramodern and passenger pleasing Boeing 787-8 while flights to Johannesburg will be operated by a Boeing 787-9.


When launched, United will become the only American carrier to serve Accra and Lagos nonstop from Washington, D.C.


The new service between New York and Johannesburg will be in addition to United’s seasonal, three-times-weekly service between Newark/New York and Cape Town.


By adding new daily nonstop flights between Newark/New York and Johannesburg in spring 2021, the airline will operate more flights to South Africa than any other U.S. carrier.


United's Boeing 787s feature United Polaris business class, a premium travel experience featuring luxury bedding from Saks Fifth Avenue and restaurant-quality, multi-course inflight dining to premium amenity kits and full flat-bed seats.


United's newly announced international routes are subject to government approval and tickets will be available for purchase on united.com and the United app in the coming weeks.


The Washington metropolitan area has the second-largest population of Ghanaians in the United States, and Lagos is the largest Western African destination from the United States.


Now, with 65 different U.S. cities connecting through Washington Dulles, United will offer convenient one-stop connections to Western Africa.


United Airlines operated last to Nigeria in 2016 after it ended its daily service between Houston and Lagos due to difficulty in the repatriation of funds and downturn in the energy sector.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
