United Airlines (UAL) today announced new year-round daily, nonstop service between New York/Newark and Buenos Aires, Argentina, starting October 28 (subject to government approval).
Buenos Aires, one of South America’s largest commercial and cultural centers, will be United’s 14th South American destination served nonstop from the United States. United already offers daily nonstop service between Houston (IAH) and Buenos Aires.

Beginning October 28, United Flight 979 will depart from New York/Newark (EWR) at 9:50 p.m. and arrive at Buenos Aires (EZE) at 10:50 a.m. the following day (all times local).

Convenient domestic and international connections from EWR
Customers traveling beyond New York can conveniently connect to 115 domestic and international destinations at Newark Liberty International Airport in under three hours. Because United is the only U.S. carrier to serve Asia from the New York area, the new EWR-EZE service enables new, one-stop connections on United to Hong Kong, Tokyo/Narita, Beijing and Shanghai.
Expanding and growing United’s presence in Argentina
“For 25 years, United has proudly served Argentina,” said Christoff Poppe, United’s country manager in Argentina. “During this time, the United team has worked hard to serve Argentine and foreign travelers, and we’re excited to welcome new visitors from the New York area and the U.S. East coast, as well as give our customers here more options to travel to the U.S. with United Airlines.” Employees and customers throughout South America are celebrating 25 years of United service to destinations that include Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Quito and Lima. United recently celebrated 50 years of service to Mexico.
