United Starts 3 New Direct Flights for Summer 2023

United Airlines, the largest carrier across both the Atlantic and Pacific, started three new direct flights connecting New York with Malaga, Dubai, and Stockholm.

Starting May 31, travelers started to explore Spain’s Mediterranean coast with three flights per week to Malaga located in the autonomous community of Andalusia. Malaga is United’s fifth Spanish destination. 

Beyond its 16 sunny beaches, this Andalusian city on the shores of the Mediterranean has a fascinating cultural side. And the birthplace of Pablo Picasso has reinvented itself in recent years, inaugurating museums for all tastes. Here in the city of Picasso, you can visit the excellent Picasso Museum in the center, and the home where he was born.

United flies to more destinations in Spain than any other U.S. airline and this summer will offer direct flights to three Spanish cities that no other U.S. airline serves: Malaga, Tenerife, and Palma de Mallorca. Book your flight and hotel in Malaga today.

On March 25, United launched a daily service between New York/Newark and Dubai, UAE, operated on a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. The flight is part of a historic commercial agreement between the airline and Emirates that will enhance each airline’s network and give their customers easier access to hundreds of destinations within the United States and around the world. MileagePlus members traveling on United’s New York/Newark-Dubai flight can earn and redeem award miles on connecting flights to nearly 75 destinations in the Emirates and flydubai networks. United is the only U.S. airline to offer non-stop flights to Dubai from the U.S. and flies to more destinations in the Middle East and India than any other U.S. airline.

Although summers in Dubai are known for their scorching temperatures and high humidity levels, the return of Dubai Summer Surprises could bring a wave of excitement. The 10-week annual DSS celebration, taking place from June 29th to September 3rd, will offer a wide range of events, entertainment, promotions, and more. Numerous malls, venues, and stores are expected to participate, offering great deals and promotions throughout the summer, ensuring you are never too far from the excitement of DSS.

On May 27, United will return to Stockholm for the first time since 2019 with service from New York/Newark. United first began serving Stockholm, which locals proudly refer to as the “beauty on water”, in 2005. United will reconnect customers to this culturally rich and dynamic capital city with daily flights on a Boeing 757-200.

Stockholm is beloved by many as one of the most beautiful cities to visit in summer and traveling to the city in Summer 2023 has full of surprises. This year, Stockholm has no shortage of large public events. Here you’ll meet innovative filmmakers at the Stockholm International festival, experience some of the world’s biggest artists at Lollapalooza or challenge yourself at Adidas Stockholm Marathon or Lidingöloppet.
