United Airlines Extends Seasonal Services from Athens to  New York/Newark, Washington D.C. and Chicago O’Hare

United Airlines has extended its daily seasonal services from Athens to New  York/Newark and Washington D.C. for 2024, providing more travel options for travellers departing Greece. 

The airline is starting its Athens to New York-Newark service a week earlier on 31 March and flights from Athens to Washington D.C. start three weeks earlier on 15 April 2024. With these seasonal service  extensions and the introduction of new daily seasonal service between Athens and Chicago O’Hare on 24  May 2024, United is increasing flights from Greece by nearly 25 per cent for 2024.  

“With the extension of our seasonal services from Athens to New York/Newark and Washington D.C., we  are able to offer our customers in Greece the opportunity to book their next U.S. getaway even earlier this  year,” said Thorsten Lettnin, United’s Director Sales Continental Europe, Middle East, Africa, India and  Israel. “For summer 2024, United will operate its largest-ever transatlantic summer schedule and we look  forward to launching our new direct service from Athens to Chicago O’Hare, enabling even greater travel  choice and the possibility to connect onwards via our U.S. hubs to other destinations across the Americas.” 

“As we are getting ready for a new exciting summer season, the fact that United Airlines is extending its  daily nonstop seasonal services from Athens to metropolitan New York and the U.S. Capital, Washington, is  truly exciting news!” said Ioanna Papadopoulou, AIA, Director, Communications & Marketing. “Even from  the start of 2024, the U.S. market demonstrates an impressive growth of almost 30 per cent versus last year  and it continuously tops the list of our most important and popular markets, with the vibrant Greek American community playing a key role in this. We wish our airline partner a very successful season and  pledge our unwavering commitment to stay fully… “UNITED” in supporting the airline’s growth plans  to/from Athens!” 

The seasonal service extensions from Athens to New York/Newark and Washington D.C., as well as the new upcoming route from Athens to Chicago O’Hare underline United’s leadership among U.S. airlines as the  largest carrier across the Atlantic, flying nonstop from 38 transatlantic destinations for summer 2024, the  most in its history and more destinations than all other U.S. carriers combined. United continues to be the  only airline to directly connect the U.S. with Dubrovnik, Malaga, Mallorca and Tenerife.

The airline’s 2024  summer schedule also includes new services from Faro to New York/Newark, Barcelona to San Francisco,  the resumption of its seasonal Reykjavik-New York/Newark service, as well as additional flights from Rome and Brussels. United will also increase its summer seasonal Malaga-New York/Newark flight to daily service  and will start the service earlier on 3 May 2024. Additionally, the airline will be resuming earlier some of its  other most popular seasonal routes from Nice, Lisbon, Barcelona, Rome, Milan and Naples to give  customers more time and flexibility to explore destinations across the U.S.
