New Start Date for New United Airlines Dublin Service
United Airlines have announced a revised start date for their new direct service from San Francisco to Dublin. The route was initially unveiled last December for a June start date but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this was put on hold indefinitely. The new start date is now listed as 1st October operated as scheduled with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. The route will be operated on a daily basis.
United Airlines have resumed their operations since the lockdown with a four times weekly Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner service on the Newark – Dublin route. This will increase to a daily service from 1st October. The United Airlines service to Dublin from Chicago has been suspended for the moment with no revised date for a resumption of this route. Their Washington-Dulles to Dublin route will not return until 24th October and will continued be operated by a Boeing 757. The United Airlines seasonal service between Newark and Shannon has been cancelled for this year. This route along with the Delta Airlines New York JFK – Shannon service which will not be returning for the remainder of the summer season. This leaves Shannon with no scheduled transatlantic services for the summer of 2020 as Aer Lingus will not be operating to either Boston or New York JFK for the foreseeable future. Aer Lingus are expected to return on these routes in the summer of 2021.
