by Alice

United Airlines is set to enhance its international offerings with the introduction of new nonstop flights to Marrakech and Medellín, further solidifying its global presence.

Starting on October 24, United will inaugurate the only nonstop service to Marrakech from the United States. The route will operate thrice weekly from Newark Liberty International Airport. Flights will be serviced by a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, featuring 46 Polaris business class seats and 22 Premium Plus seats. This new venture positions United as the exclusive carrier offering direct access to Marrakech from the U.S. market. Ticket sales for this route will commence later in the year.


Patrick Quayle, United’s Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances, expressed the airline’s commitment to unveiling unique travel opportunities for its passengers. Quayle highlighted United’s reputation for discovering hidden gem destinations and emphasized the airline’s dedication to delivering unparalleled travel experiences.


In addition to the Marrakech route, United will introduce a new flight between Houston and Medellín, Colombia, commencing on October 27. Operated on a Boeing 737 aircraft, this service will complement United’s existing offerings from Houston and Newark to Bogota.


United’s expansion efforts extend beyond new routes. The airline plans to increase frequencies to key destinations such as Hong Kong, Seoul, and Porto in Portugal. Furthermore, United intends to add four weekly flights between Los Angeles and Shanghai, with plans to escalate to daily flights by late October.

Closer to home, United is bolstering its domestic services, with nearly a 20% increase in flights to Florida during the past winter season. Additionally, the airline has expanded its nonstop offerings to popular ski destinations including Jackson Hole, Vail, Steamboat, Telluride, and Big Sky.

This summer, United is embarking on its largest-ever expansion into Canada, driven by heightened traveler interest. This expansion follows the airline’s significant partnership expansion with Air Canada, underscoring United’s commitment to meeting the evolving needs of its customers and solidifying its position as a leader in the aviation industry.
