Amidst reports outlining United Airlines' recent surge in third-quarter profits to a staggering $924 million - more than double their 2013 Q3 profits - the air carrier has announced the launch of new, non-stop, flights to a variety of major international destinations, including Melbourne, Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, and Newcastle.
Serving these new non-stop routes, United Airlines - the primary North American customer for Boeing's newest commercial 787 - will debut the "Dreamliner" for its first international deployment since the aircraft's inception into the United Airlines fleet in late 2012.
Rather than compete in the tumultuous commercial airline marketplace marked by the ever-growing presence of low-cost carriers and business-class competitors, United Airlines plans to dominate their niche by adding new non-stop routes and increased scheduling options, in an effort to provide travelers with an unmatched level of convenience. In an industry wracked with inconvenient travel-hiccups, from the irrationally fear-based increase of security scrutiny, to on-board altercations over reclining seats, United's focus on air-travel convenience comes at a time when we need it most.
The Added Ease of Non-Stop, Trans-Pacific Travel
As the largest carrier at San Francisco International Airport (SFO), United Airlines already offers the most non-stop flights to international destinations - serving nearly 30 per day from the Bay Area hub. Now United has added yet another, providing daily non-stop service to Tokyo, Japan's Haneda Airport. United's additional San Francisco-based service to Tokyo Haneda Airport compliments their existing non-stop route to Tokyo Narita International Airport from SFO, effectively maximizing the choices that travelers have when booking flights to Tokyo, and further exemplifying United's commitment to air-travel convenience.
In keeping with their strategy to make commercial flights more convenient, United has also added two new non-stop routes from Guam's Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport (GUM), to Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea, and to Asia's largest aviation hub - Shanghai Pudong International Airport in China.
Further south, United has added non-stop flights to Melbourne, Australia from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), operating six times weekly. United Airlines has taken great care in organizing the new Melbourne flights, timing them to sync-up with their extensive network of US trans-national connections, ensuring the most convenient traveling schedules for customers. In conjunction with their existing route options to Sydney and Melbourne from SFO, the addition of non-stop Melbourne flights from LAX solidifies United Airlines as the leading provider of flights to Australia from North America, operating more flights, to more destinations, than any other carrier in the US.
If you thought United's only focus was bolstering its west-coast flight services, think again, as they have also announced the addition of non-stop service from Newark Liberty International (EWR) to Newcastle Airport in the UK, to run from May 23rd, 2015 - September 7th, 2015 as a "seasonal route."
