United Airlines has announced the introduction of four new seasonal routes to their network, one of which will bring the carrier to a new destination.

The first two new seasonal routes are from Alaska, with a route from the state’s busiest airport in Anchorage to the airline’s Washington Dulles hub. The second new route out of Alaska will be from slightly further north, Fairbanks, with the airline restarting the seasonal link from the city to Denver, Colo.

The airline has served the Fairbanks to Denver route in the past, with the route last operating in the summer before the pandemic, while Anchorage to Washington Dulles is a completely new route for the airline. Both of these routes will be served by the airline’s Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft and will both begin on May 23.

The third route is another resumption of a pre-COVID route, Vancouver in British Colombia to Washington Dulles. With the addition of this route on May 2, United will now serve every single one of their U.S. hubs out of Vancouver, giving United passengers even more opportunities to connect onward in their network. This route will also be served using the airline’s Boeing 737 MAX 8.

The fourth route will still be in Canada, but on the other side of the country from Halifax in Nova Scotia. The carrier will resume flights to Newark using its Embraer E175 aircraft on May 23.

United isn’t the first airline that has announced an expansion in Halifax, with Delta announcing a resumption of service to the city for the first time in over five years. American resumed service to the city last summer but will add a fourth nonstop destination from Halifax this summer. This will be the first summer since 2019 that the three major airlines in the United States will offer service to Halifax.

All routes are seasonal and will end in the fall, but that may change depending on the demand and popularity of the routes and how they perform. All schedules and flights are subject to change.

    Joe has always been interested in planes, for as long as he can remember. He grew up in Central New York during the early 2000s when US Airways Express turboprops ruled the skies. Being from a non-aviation family made it harder for him to be around planes and would only spend about three hours a month at the airport. He was so excited when he could drive by himself and the first thing he did with the license was get ice cream and go plane spotting for the entire day. When he has the time (and money) he likes to take spotting trips to any location worth a visit. He’s currently enrolled at Western Michigan University earning a degree in Aviation Management and Operations.
