On Friday (May 21, 2021), United Airlines announced that they will resume service to Spain starting in July, as the country will reopen travel to vaccinated travelers on June 7, 2021. Starting in July, United will resume service between New York/Newark and Spain with five weekly flights to Barcelona and Six weekly flights to Madrid. United is also increasing flights between Newark and Italy and will offer daily service to Rome and Milan from July. As previously announced, the airline is also launching new routes to Dubrovnik (Croatia), Reykjavik (Iceland) and Athens (Greece), while increasing frequencies to Frankfurt, Munich and Brussels. In total, United will offer over 30 daily flights to 16 European destinations this summer. United's European schedule expansion comes after the European Union Council's formal recommendation that EU Member States can reopen to fully vaccinated tourists.

In Friday’s announcement, United Airlines’ Vice President of International Network and Alliances, Patrick Quayle, said,

“The EU Council's recommendation represents the turning of the page in the pandemic for our customers, employees and residents of the EU, and brings us all closer to reuniting the world. In addition to offering service to more destinations in Europe than any other U.S. carrier, only United allows customers to easily upload vaccine records and testing results to our app making international travel much easier.”

United Airlines’ shared purpose is “Connecting People. Uniting the World.” Shares in the company’s parent, United Airlines Holdings, Inc., are publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the symbol ‘UAL.’
