United Airlines Launches Nonstop Milan-Chicago O’hare
The first flight of United Airlines’ brand-new daily nonstop seasonal service between Milan Malpensa Airport and its hub in Chicago O’Hare took off from Milan over the weekend, and the airline celebrated the launch of the service by sending out its maiden flight. United Airlines is the sole airline that, thanks to this newly established route, will be able to fly nonstop between Milan and Chicago.
The new service builds on United’s existing daily nonstop year-round services from Milan Malpensa and Rome to New York/Newark; seasonal service from Rome to Washington D.C.; and seasonal services from Venice to New York/Newark; Rome to Chicago O’Hare; and Naples to New York/Newark. Additionally, the new service builds on United’s seasonal services from Naples to New York/Newark; Venice to New York/Newark; and Rome to Chicago O’Hare. Additionally, the airline intends to begin operating a second frequency between Rome and New York/Newark beginning on the 28th of May in 2022. United Airlines, which is based in the United States, now serves more locations in Italy than any other airline based in the United States, and during the summer season of 2022, United will operate eight daily nonstop flights flying from Italy to the United States.
Thorsten Lettnin, United’s Director of Sales for Continental Europe, India, and West Africa, expressed his excitement at the launch of the new route between Milan and United’s base in Chicago. “We are happy to inaugurate this new service,” Lettnin remarked.
“We are the only airline that operates direct flights between Milan and Chicago, and those flights are offered by us. Our newly introduced service not only fortifies our existing international route network but also enables us to provide our clients in Italy with convenient, non-stop connections to more than one hundred locations in the Americas through our hub at Chicago O’Hare.”
“Not only are airlines coming back to provide the familiar connections at our airports, but they are also investing in new places to fly to, which is an extremely positive indicator that they have trust in the area. United Airlines has become the symbol of this phenomenon due to the fact that it operates a daily trip to Chicago. “This new destination is one of the most significant new developments of the summer season,” stated Andrea Tucci, Vice President, Aviation Business Development of SEA. “[It] is one of the most important new developments of the summer season.” “This new route operated by United, along with the daily flight to New York/Newark, opens the door to the United States through the carrier’s Chicago O’Hare network and adds quality to the travel offering from our airports, particularly to the Pacific Coast,” said the company. “This new route opens the door to the United States through the carrier’s Chicago O’Hare network.” We are delighted to be able to celebrate the beginning of this relationship to one of the most alluring places in the United States.”
This new route is being introduced as part of United’s greatest expansion in its history across the Atlantic Ocean in preparation for a significant improvement in the market for European summer vacations. Between the middle of April and the beginning of June, United will begin or restart service on a total of 30 transatlantic routes. This includes the addition of new nonstop flights to five separate leisure locations that are not served by any other airline in North America. These destinations are Amman, Jordan; Bergen, Norway; the Azores; Palma de Mallorca, Spain; and Tenerife, which is located in the Spanish Canary Islands. The airline will also be starting new nonstop flights to some of Europe’s most popular business and tourism centers, including London, Zurich, Munich, and Nice, in addition to Milan. These hubs include Milan as one of them.
In 2020, United will have a transatlantic route network that is greater by more than 25 percent than it had been in 2019. Because of this growth, United will become the biggest airline operating over the Atlantic for the very first time in aviation history. United will service more transatlantic destinations than all other U.S. carriers combined.
