United Airlines announces new daily service between Dublin and San Francisco
The service will operate from next year.
United Airlines has announced a new daily non-stop service between Dublin and San Francisco.
The airline will operate its new route with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner from June 6, 2020.
The new daily service will depart Dublin at 11.50am and will arrive in San Francisco at 2.20pm.
The return flight will depart San Francisco at 3.55pm and arrive in Dublin Airport at 9.45am the following morning.
"United is a valued customer serving Dublin Airport for more than two decades and we are particularly delighted to see it adding a fourth destination to its route network next summer,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.
“San Francisco is the global tech centre of the world and many of the companies based there have offices in Ireland.
"This new route will further grow tourism and trade between Ireland and the US and provide greater choice and flexibility for both business and leisure passengers. We will work closely with United’s management team to ensure this new service is a success in both directions.”
The airline also operates services to Chicago, Newark and Washington DC from Dublin.
