To cater to the increasing demand for transatlantic travel to and from Scotland, United Airlines has announced its plans to boost its service between Edinburgh Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport. As a part of this expansion, the airline will operate four daily flights between the two destinations.

United Airlines will use its Boeing 757-200 aircraft to operate these flights. The airline will continue to maintain two flights, twice a day throughout the year. In a statement, the airline expressed its enthusiasm for introducing a second daily service between Edinburgh and New York Newark, calling it a positive development.

United Airlines stated that the increased service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Edinburgh Airport will offer greater travel options to passengers across Scotland. This expansion will allow travellers to benefit from four direct flights between Edinburgh and the United States, providing access to various destinations beyond the country.

From Edinburgh to 151 destinations in the Americas

The airline added that customers from Scotland will be able to connect to 151 cities throughout the Americas from Edinburgh. This enhancement in service comes after Edinburgh Airport had previously announced its plans to increase the number of flights between the two destinations earlier this year.

Kate Sherry, the aviation director at Edinburgh Airport, expressed her delight over the additional service, stating that it will offer more connectivity to the United States during peak travel times.

Kate Sherry added: “We know New York is a city that generates excitement for travel as well as its importance for business and trade, but this will also make inbound tourism that little bit easier by offering visitors to America another way to get here and see what Scotland has to offer.

The statement highlights the strong bond between United Airlines and the airport, demonstrating the airline’s trust in the airport’s capabilities. This partnership aims to further increase United’s presence in Scotland and bolster direct connectivity between Scotland and the US.
