United Airlines has extended its seasonal service from Milano Malpensa Airport to Chicago O’Hare for 2024, starting almost one month earlier.

Customers from Italy can benefit from more time to visit Chicago and beyond to destinations across the Americas.

United is the only carrier flying between Milan and Chicago and is offering more flights from Italy to Chicago than any other airline.

Walter Cianciusi, Country Sales Manager Italy, United Airlines said: “We are delighted to extend our seasonal service from Milan to Chicago for the summer season this year, enabling our customers in Italy to book their next U.S. getaway even earlier.

“For summer 2024, United will operate its largest-ever transatlantic summer schedule in its history, offering even greater travel choice and the possibility to connect seamlessly via our U.S. hubs to onward destinations across the Americas.”

Andrea Tucci, Vice President Aviation Business Development SEA Milan Airports said: “The decision by United to serve two such significant gateways in the United States aligns perfectly with our airport’s strategy and fills us with particular satisfaction, bolstered by the impressive traffic results.

“The current extension of seasonality reflects the market’s enthusiastic response in Milan to the increased capacity to Chicago, resulting in a remarkable 70 per cent growth in passenger volumes compared to the same season pre-pandemic season.”
