Today, United Airlines announced new non-stop service between San Francisco and Dublin, connecting two of the world’s great technology centers. Pending government approval, the daily service will begin on June 5, 2020 and will be operated with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. The new service will make United Airlines the only carrier to offer non-stop service between the West Coast of the U.S. and Dublin. In Wednesday’s announcement, United’s Vice President of International Network, Patrick Quayle said,
“Dublin and the Silicon Valley are two regions synonymous with bug tech. Many global tech companies have a major footprint in both regions, and they need a carrier with an extensive worldwide network to help conveniently connect their business. As the only U.S. airline to serve Ireland from the West Coast, United is uniquely suited to provide the connectivity these companies and economies need to continue thriving.”
With the new service announced today, United Airlines will now offer more Business Class seats between the U.S. and Dublin than any other domestic airline next summer.
