United Announces Updated European Flight Schedule

Chicago-based United Airlines has announced its updated travel restrictions after the recent U.S. travel ban due to COVID-19.

In a statement released earlier today, the carrier announced that it would first be capping all fares to the U.S. on flights from countries affected by the travel ban.

Additionally, the carrier will continue to operate its full schedule from Europe to the U.S. until March 20. However, flights from Houston and Denver to London will not be operated.

The latter two flights will be suspended on March 16.

From March 20, the carrier’s reduced schedule will show it still operating flights to Dublin, Zurich, Brussels, Paris, Munich, Frankfurt and Amsterdam. In addition, flights to and from London will be operated three times a day and flights to and from Lisbon four times a week.

These flights will be operated until the end of April, pending changing demand and restrictions.

The updated flight schedule for Zurich, Brussels, Paris, and Amsterdam are available now on the airline’s website and the reductions for the U.K. and Ireland will be available on March 17.

COVID-19 has had a massive impact on United, as well as other carriers, with the reduced European schedule being included as part of the carrier’s measures to slash half of its flights. The carrier also expects remaining flights in its system to be operated at less than 30 percent capacity.
