CHICAGO, 31 May 2021: United Airlines applauds Spain following its decision to reopen travel to vaccinated visitors starting 7 June.
The announcement comes following the European Union Council’s formal recommendation that EU member states can reopen to fully vaccinated tourists.
United is planning the resumption of 30 daily flights to 16 destinations in Europe this summer, including service between New York/Newark and Barcelona and Madrid.
United is also making travelling to and from these countries easier through its Travel-Ready Centre, which allows customers to view Covid-19 entry requirements, find, schedule and receive uploaded test results from local providers and upload any required testing and vaccination records for domestic and international travel, all in one place. United is the first and only US airline to integrate all these features into its mobile app and website.
United also recently announced a new collaboration with Abbott and became the first US carrier to set up an easy way for international travellers to bring a CDC-approved test with them, self-administer while abroad, and return home through an innovative collaboration with Abbott.
This summer, United is expanding its service to Europe, including recently announced new routes to Dubrovnik, Croatia, Reykjavik, Iceland and Athens, Greece as well as adding more flights into Frankfurt, Munich and Brussels that provide broad connectivity throughout the region. United is increasing flights across Europe and will operate the following routes to European countries which have recently announced plans to welcome tourists who meet the destination requirements:
United will increase flights between New York/Newark and Milan to daily in July
United’s flights from New York/Newark and Rome and Milan are part of Italy’s Covid-tested flights’ programme – customers travelling on these flights can avoid self-isolation by presenting a negative PCR or rapid antigen test result, performed no more than 48 hours prior to departure and a negative antigen test on arrival.
United will resume five weekly services between New York/Newark and Barcelona and six weekly services between New York/Newark and Madrid starting this July.
All of these flights are available for purchase on united.com, and to see the full list of reopened countries where United is flying, visit united.com/reopen. Customers should review local country requirements before they travel.
