United Poised to Continue Some International Flying
In the wake of the emergency generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, United Airlines has decided to cancel most of its long-haul schedule but to maintain a skeleton presence on several of its most important routes.
On Friday, United had announced the cancelation of all its long-haul flights but just 24 hours later decided to reinstate some international services.
With immediate effect and through May 2020 United will operate a daily flight from Newark to Frankfurt, London Heathrow and Tel Aviv, from Houston Intercontinental to Sao Paulo and from San Francisco to Tokyo-Narita and Sydney.
In addition to those services, it will also provide some limited commercial flights to passengers looking to return home to Europe or to the United States. United Airlines will fly from New York to Amsterdam, Munich, Brussels and Sao Paulo, from Washington Dulles to London Heathrow and from San Francisco to Frankfurt only until Friday.
The airline’s CEO Oscar Munoz had announced a 60 percent reduction of United Airlines’ schedule for the month of April and warned about the possibility of massive layoffs without the help of the federal government by the end of this month.
The airline industry is lobbying for $29 billion in cash grants and a further $29 billion in zero-interest loans, while the Federal Government is so far offering up to $50 billion in loans but no grants.
