United Airlines today launched a second daily nonstop service between Dublin and its New York hub, Newark Liberty International Airport.
The seasonal service will operate until August 19, 2014.
"We are delighted to introduce an additional nonstop service to New York and offer our Irish customers increased flexibility this summer,” said Yvonne Muldoon, United's Sales Manager Ireland. "From our hub at New York/Newark, United customers can not only reach downtown Manhattan quickly and easily, but also take advantage of convenient connections to over 300 destinations across the Americas.”
United operates the service with Boeing 757-200 aircraft with 169 seats - 16 flat-bed seats in United BusinessFirst and 153 in United Economy, including 45 Economy Plus seats with added legroom and increased personal space.
