A new non-stop service between Dublin and San Francisco is being introduced by United Airlines from 5 June using the Boeing B787-8 Dreamliner. Flights will operate daily in the peak summer season, reducing to four a week for the rest of the year.
United will become the only US carrier to offer direct daily flights between the Irish capital and the US West Coast as it continues to grow its European route network out of San Francisco.
The airline initially flew to London and Frankfurt but now serves Amsterdam, Munich, Paris and Zurich too, making Dublin its seventh gateway in Europe. It also serves Dublin year-round from New York Newark and seasonally from Chicago and Washington Dulles.
Vice-president of international network Patrick Quayle said: “Dublin and the Silicon Valley are synonymous with big tech and companies with a presence there need a carrier with an extensive worldwide network to help connect their businesses.
“As the only US 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 launch of the new service, United says it will have more daily Business Class seats between Dublin and the US this summer than any other US airline.
