NEW YORK, NY – United Airlines introduces its first-ever service to Turkey this weekend with the launch of daily nonstop service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport, beginning July 1.

Flight 904 is scheduled to depart Newark Liberty daily at 7:27 p.m. and arrive in Istanbul at 12:20 p.m. the next day. The return flight, 905, is scheduled to depart Istanbul daily at 1:55 p.m. and arrive in Newark at 6:02 p.m. the same day (all times local). Flying times are nine hours, 53 minutes eastbound and 11 hours, seven minutes westbound.

“We are delighted to add Istanbul to our global route network,” said James Mueller, United’s vice president, Atlantic & Pacific Sales. “Customers in the U.S. and Turkey will benefit from increased travel options with this new service.”

Initially, the service will operate with a three-cabin Boeing 767-300 aircraft, featuring a total of 183 seats – six in United Global First, 26 in United BusinessFirst and 151 in United Economy, including 67 Economy Plus seats. Later this summer, United plans to fly this route with its newly-configured Boeing 767-300, which features 30 seats in United BusinessFirst, 49 in Economy Plus and 135 in Economy. Customers traveling in BusinessFirst in this enhanced aircraft will enjoy flat-bed seats, a 15.4″ touchscreen monitor delivering on-demand inflight audio/video content, electrical and USB outlets, an iPod jack and a five-course meal with fine wines. Customers in Economy Plus will benefit from more legroom and more recline than Economy seats. Each Economy Plus and Economy seat in this upgraded aircraft features a 9″ touchscreen on-demand inflight entertainment system, and all Economy rows have access to electrical outlets.

United’s MileagePlus members can earn double award miles when flying this new service.
