United Airlines today submitted a formal application to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for authority to increase service between New York/Newark Liberty and Shanghai Pudong beginning in June 2020. If approved, United’s second daily flight will create new opportunities for customers to conveniently connect to Shanghai from more than 90 U.S. and Canadian destinations served by United from New York/Newark.

“Our application for a second daily flight between New York/Newark and Shanghai is in response to the demand for travel between each country’s financial center, which has grown annually for the last several years,” said Oscar Munoz, United’s Chief Executive Officer. “If approved, this additional flight will help facilitate the development of increased business and tourism, provide additional capacity for customers and further enhance United’s position both as the airline of choice to China and our hub at Newark Liberty International Airport as the premier East Coast gateway to Asia.”

From its East Coast hub at Newark Liberty International Airport, located just 14 miles from Manhattan, United plays a critical role in driving global economic development by providing connectivity between the region and key domestic and international business centers.
