United Airlines will restart its daily Edinburgh service to New York Newark from March 5, 2022.

The route was dropped in 2020 – United suspends more UK routes – but with demand returning, the airline is adding daily nonstop seasonal services to New York from March 5, 2022, and also from Edinburgh to Chicago O’Hare and Washington D.C. on May 7, 2022. United will be the first airline to resume service between Scotland and the United States and will offer more services between Scotland and the U.S. than any other airline.

The services  will be operated with Boeing 757-200 aircraft, featuring a total of 169 seats – 16 flat-bed seats in United Polaris business class and 153 in economy, including 45 Economy Plus seats .

“We are delighted to return to Scotland in 2022 and resume nonstop services from Edinburgh to the United States,” said Bob Schumacher, United’s Director Sales U.K. and Ireland. “With the return of services, our customers in Edinburgh can once again take advantage of direct connections to the U.S., as well as an unrivalled route network from United’s hubs at New York/Newark, Chicago and Washington, D.C., offering convenient nonstop connections to 129 destinations across the Americas.”

“It’s incredibly exciting to be resuming our transatlantic services with United to allow direct travel between Scotland and the USA for the first time in two years. It will allow families to reunite, friends to reconnect and re-open the strong tourism destinations on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive.
