United Airlines announced it will be offering customers year-round nonstop service between New York/Newark and Rome. Expanding its current summer seasonal daily schedule, United will now also offer the service from November 2017 through to March 2018 – operating between three times a week and daily. The airline will continue to operate its seasonal service to Rome during the summer months from its hubs at Chicago O’Hare, New York/Newark Liberty and Washington D.C./Dulles International Airport.
The increase in service marks a milestone year for United Airlines in Italy. Since beginning service there in 1997, United has connected more than 7.6 million customers on nearly 42,000 flights between the U.S. and Italy. This year, United also celebrates 20 years of service to Milan from New York/Newark and a decade of service to Rome from its hub at Washington Dulles. United also offers nonstop seasonal service to Venice from New York/Newark.
“Expanding our schedule to operate year-round to Rome means more customers from throughout the U.S. have additional opportunities to visit Italy,” said Marcel Fuchs, United’s vice president of Atlantic Sales. “Our service to Rome is timed perfectly for customers making connections from more than 75 cities around the United States and Latin America and it offers our Italian customers another convenient way to see New York or connect to other destinations throughout the United States.”
