United Airlines has unveiled an expanded route network set to take off in time for summer 2023.
In addition to the recently announced new service to Dubai (DXB), United will launch service from the U.S. to Málaga (AGP) in Spain for the first time and relaunch service to Stockholm (ARN) in Sweden.
“Next summer United is offering the best of both worlds: we’re making it easier for our customers to visit the most popular cities in Europe, but we’re also expanding our reach to give travelers access to new places they haven’t yet experienced,” said Patrick Quayle, Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances at United.
The Chicago-based carrier will also add additional services on some of its most popular routes, such as Barcelona (BCN), Berlin (BER), London (LHR), Paris (CDG), and Rome (FCO).
Here’s everything we know about United’s sizzling new routes for summer ’23.
United Ramps Up Its Route Network for Summer 2023
United is more determined than ever to keep up its reputation as the U.S. airline with the most transatlantic flights.
Summer 2023 promises to boast its largest number of transatlantic flights ever with the addition of 3 new destinations and 4 new routes, as well as the increasing of services of 2 of the routes already in operation.
The schedule for the launch of the new routes is as follows:

|Chicago (ORD)||Barcelona (BCN)||New Route||May 25, 2023||Daily||Boeing 787-8|

Bottom Line: Summer 2023 will see United Airlines offering more transatlantic flights than ever before. If you’re tempted by any of the new routes, be sure to consider using United’s MileagePlus miles to pay for your flights so you can save your cash for when you get there.
Thanks to United’s increased transatlantic route network, you’ll have more travel options than ever for summer 2023.
Whether it is the new destinations of Dubai, Málaga, and Stockholm or the only nonstop service between Dulles and Berlin that takes your fancy, United has you covered.
We have a hunch this won’t be the end of United’s summer 2023 expansion.
