united airlines

American airline United Airlines began in late May a daily direct seasonal connection between the Portuguese and the US capitals. The 8-hour daily flight will be carried out in a Boeing 757-200 with 169 seats. United Airlines has been operating for many years the route between Lisbon Airport and New York / Newark.

Guido Araújo, regional director of United Airlines, during the flight opening ceremony, stressed the importance of this new route to the company and passengers, highlighting the commitment to serve well the Portuguese customers and strengthen the global network of United Airlines that will benefit both countries. United operates flights from Washington / Dulles to over 300 destinations. 

At the flight premiere, ANA-Airports held the traditional "baptism", carried out by the airport fire department. The first passengers from this flight were presented with cake and sparkling wine and captured the moment in a customized "selfie".
