New trans-Atlantic service
Earlier this year, United announced new service to 31 destinations across the U.S. and Europe, including new seasonal service between San Francisco and Germany. Starting May 24, for the first time ever, United will launch nonstop, seasonal service between San Francisco and Munich (MUC). The route will be operated with one of the most advanced passenger airplanes, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which delivers unprecedented operating efficiency, comfort and lower emissions.
From San Francisco, United offers year-round, nonstop trans-Atlantic service to destinations including, Frankfurt (FRA), London (LHR), Paris (CDG) and Tel Aviv (TLV).
There is no change to United’s full-year 2017 capacity guidance.
