The airline already offers non-stop flights between Manila and San Francisco.

Patrick Quayle, United’s senior vice president of global network planning and alliances, in a statement said: “We have consistently been ahead of the curve in finding hidden gem destinations for our customers to explore and remain committed to providing the most unique slate of travel options for their adventures abroad.”

The US carrier is expanding its global network by adding non-stop flights between New York/Newark-Marrakesh (Morocco) and Houston-Medellin (Colombia) for the first time.

United will also increase its flights to Portugal (Porto), Hong Kong, and South Korea (Seoul) and resume the Los Angeles-Shanghai service subject to government approvals as the Chinese and US governments agreed to boost the flights between the two countries.

The airline’s international schedule for 2024 also includes the expansion of services to more destinations globally.

Notable additions include a second daily Los Angeles-Hong Kong flight on a Boeing 787-9 aircraft on October 26 and twice-daily flights between San Francisco-Seoul starting October 25. The airline is set to increase flights between Shanghai-Los Angeles and add a second daily flight between New York/Newark-Porto, Portugal.

The US and Marrakesh flight – with new service from New York/Newark will begin October 24, three times weekly on a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, equipped with 46 United Polaris business class and 22 United Premium Plus seats as options.

Medellin, Colombia will have a daily service from Houston on Boeing 737 aircraft, beginning October 27.

United’s global network, now the largest among US airlines, includes non-stop service to 134 international destinations across 67 countries with flights to more destinations across the Atlantic and Pacific than all other US carriers combined.
