 In Aviation, News

United Airlines has announced the launch of the first direct air link between Faro and New York/Newark (USA) on May 24, 2024, reports the Portugal Resident.

“The new flight will make it easy for US customers to visit Portugal’s Algarve region, home to some of the country’s most scenic beaches and striking historic sites,” the American airline says in a statement released this Thursday.
The flight will operate four times a week on a Boeing 757-200, featuring a total of 176 seats – 16 flat-bed seats in United Polaris business class and 160 in economy, including 42 Economy Plus seats with “added legroom and increased personal space.”
As United Airlines points out, it will become the first and only airline to directly connect the United States and Faro.
It adds that it currently serves more destinations in Portugal than all US carriers with its existing year-round service between New York/Newark–Lisbon, as well as seasonal service between Washington/Dulles-Lisbon, New York/Newark–Porto and New York/Newark-Ponta Delgada, Azores.
