United Airlines plans to operate services above 2019 levels to leisure-oriented destinations this winter, the carrier announced.
The carrier reported that passenger volume over the Fourth of July holiday period was five times what it was last year, and it has expanded its winter schedule as it expects that trend to continue throughout the rest of this year. From November through March, United plans to fly 137 more flights than it did in 2019 to warm-weather U.S. destinations including Florida, California, Arizona, Georgia and Nevada.
United also will operate service to beach destinations in Latin America that is 30 percent higher than 2019 levels. That will include 12 new routes from its hubs in Denver, Los Angeles, Newark, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
