United Airlines Marks 20 Years Flying from Dublin Airport

United Airlines is marking 20 years of its non-stop service between Dublin and New York/Newark. Since its launch in June 1998 the service has carried over 2.7 million customers on more than 17,000 flights.

“We are extremely proud to mark two decades of our non-stop service from Dublin to New York/Newark and thank our valued customers and the travel trade community across Ireland for choosing United,” said Bob Schumacher, Managing Director Sales, UK & Ireland, United Airlines. “Since 1998 our service has allowed our Irish customers to take advantage of our extensive route network from our New York/Newark hub that today offers almost 80 non-stop connections across the USA, Canada, Mexico and Central America.”

Vincent Harrison, Managing Director, Dublin Airport, said: “United Airlines is an important customer and I want to acknowledge its commitment to Dublin Airport and its Newark route since it started in 1998. 

“We have worked closely with our friends at United fostering strong relationships and we were delighted to see its route network go from strength to strength with the addition of Washington DC and Chicago in recent years. United Airlines has carried a total of 3.5 million passengers on its three routes from Dublin Airport during those 20 years. We wish United Airlines continued success with its route network from Dublin Airport and we are committed to work closely with the airline to grow passenger numbers further.”
