United plans 2nd daily nonstop service from New York/Neward to Brussels

United Airlines will introduce a second daily nonstop service from its New York hub, Newark Liberty International Airport, to Brussels, Belgium, the company said.

The new service will operate next summer beginning May 5 to Oct. 28, 2016 (both dates eastbound).

Like United´s existing service between New York/Newark and Brussels, the second daily service will be part of United´s trans-Atlantic joint venture with Star Alliance partners Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa, Austrian, SWISS and Air Canada.

From New York/Newark, United operates flights to more than 300 destinations in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean, including more than 100 served nonstop. United operates the largest and most comprehensive hub in the New York City market at Newark Liberty International Airport.

United has served Belgium since 1992.

United Airlines and United Express operate an average of nearly 5,000 flights a day to 352 airports across six continents. The common stock of United´s parent, United Continental Holdings, Inc., is traded on the NYSE under the symbol UAL.
