United Airlines is shaking things up with its largest ever international network expansion, which includes a new route from Australia & additional services to New Zealand.
Taking off on 29 October 2019 will be United Airlines’ first ever non-stop service between Melbourne and San Francisco.
Qantas is getting a little competition on its recently launched San Francisco-Melbourne flights.
Operating year-round, the service will fly three times weekly on the airline’s popular Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner featuring larger windows, better air quality, reduced noise pollution and cleaner fuel practices.
The new route will be United Airlines’ second out of Melbourne, with non-stop flights to Los Angeles already in operation. It will also be the carrier’s fifth non-stop operation out of Australia after Sydney-Houston, Sydney-Los Angeles, Sydney-San Francisco.
Across the Tasman, the US carrier said it will extend its services from San Francisco to Auckland to year-round with three times weekly flights from 30 March 2019.
Working in partnership with Air New Zealand, the flights will operate on United’s Boeing 777-200ER aircraft.
United’s big international network expansion also includes non-stop flights from San Francisco to Amsterdam, a new seasonal service from San Francisco to New Dehli, as well as a second flight from San Francisco to Seoul and more.
