United Airlines takes further reductions in schedules

United has announced it will implement a 60% schedule reduction in April, including a 42% reduction across the US and Canada and an 85% decrease in international flights, the company said.

The airline said a continued drop in travel demand as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, government mandates or restrictions prohibiting travel, it is taking steps to manage the impact of the outbreak.

Across the Atlantic, Pacific and Latin America, United will operate approximately 45 daily flights in April.

While United does not plan to suspend service to any single US city now – with the exception of Mammoth Lakes, CA – the airline is closely monitoring demand as well as changes in state and local curfews and government restrictions across the US and will adjust its schedule accordingly throughout the month.
