26.04.2018 -

Hamburg is once again directly connected with New York. United Airlines today resumed its seasonal intercontinental service from Hamburg Airport to New York - Newark. The airline operates the route with a daily service using a Boeing 757-200. The long-haul route from Hamburg to New York - Newark has been operated by the US carrier, United Airlines, since 10 June, 2005. Since the launch of the route between Hamburg and New York - Newark, 1.1 million passengers have travelled on a total of 7,687 flights.

“Our successful partnership with United Airlines stretches back almost 13 years,” says Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport. “Hamburg and the metropolitan region are a strong market and offer great potential for transatlantic connections. I am therefore delighted that United is resuming its dedicated involvement at Hamburg Airport as of today, flying our passengers quickly and comfortably to the USA without any stopover on the way.”

“With the daily New York flight, United Airlines operates the only non-stop service from Hamburg to the USA. It brings passengers to our hub, Newark Liberty International Airport, with ideal connections to cities across the USA. And if your destination is the ‘Big Apple’ itself, the flight to Newark is ideal: no other airport in the New York region offers better direct connections to Manhattan. It’s just a short train journey for our passengers to Penn Station,” says Guido Dias Araujo, Regional Director Central Europe & Iberia at United Airlines.
