United Airlines is doing big things these days!
The popular airline company that was established in 1928, has decided to add new long-haul flights that include not two-stop, not one-stop, but nonstop trips to South Africa, Nigeria, and Ghana.
The new routes are going to include:
- Washington, D.C.—Accra, Ghana: beginning late spring 2021
- Washington, D.C.—Lagos, Nigeria: beginning late spring 2021
- Newark, New Jersey—Johannesburg: beginning spring 2021
“Now is the right time to take a bold step in evolving our global network to help our customers reconnect with friends, family, and colleagues around the world,” Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of international network and alliances, said in a statement.
Tickets will be available for purchase on http://www.united.com and via the United app in the coming weeks, the airline says.
United also highlighted that when its new nonstop Accra service launches, the airline will be the only U.S. carrier offering the nonstop flight from Washington, D.C., which is home to the second-largest population of Ghanaians in the United States, according to the airline.
In addition to Africa, United is adding nonstop flight routes to Israel, India, and Hawaii.
