An airline has announced plans to resume daily nonstop services between Scotland and the United States next year.
United Airlines will resume its daily nonstop flight between Edinburgh and Newark Airport near New York from March 5.
The airline will also resume daily seasonal services between Edinburgh and Chicago and Washington D C from May 7.
United will be the first airline to resume flights between Scotland and the United States.
“We are delighted to return to Scotland in 2022 and resume nonstop services from Edinburgh to the United States,” said Bob Schumacher from United Airlines.
“With the return of services, our customers in Edinburgh can once again take advantage of direct connections to the US, as well as an unrivalled route network from United’s hubs at New York/Newark, Chicago and Washington, DC, offering convenient nonstop connections to 129 destinations across the Americas.”
Gordon Dewar, Edinburgh Airport’s Chief Executive, added: “It’s incredibly exciting to be resuming our transatlantic services with United to allow direct travel between Scotland and the USA for the first time in two years.
“It will allow families to reunite, friends to reconnect and re-open the strong tourism destinations on both sides of the Atlantic.”
