United Airlines today announced the return of its nonstop daily seasonal service between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and its New York/Newark hub from 28 May 2023.
The airline is returning to the Swedish capital for the first time since 2019, having previously operated the route for 14 years from 2005.
“We are excited to be back in Sweden for 2023 with the return of our service from Stockholm to New York,” said Lucas Geerts, United’s Regional Sales Manager Northern Europe.
“We expect another busy summer for international travel in 2023 and are proud to build on our industry-leading global network, providing our customers in Sweden with direct access to the New York City area, as well as the possibility to conveniently connect via our New York/Newark hub to other destinations across the Americas.”
“We are delighted that United Airlines has chosen to return to Stockholm Arlanda Airport with its direct route to New York next summer,” said Elizabeth Axtelius, Director Aviation Business at Swedavia.
“Travel demand to North America is high and the additional connectivity welcome. The U.S. is one of our biggest trade partners and an important market for incoming tourism as well as an attractive destination for Swedes.”
