New York-based United Airlines plans to fly its first US domestic flight from San Francisco International Airport to Zurich on Thursday, the company said Monday.
The flight, scheduled to depart at 11:15 a.m.
PT, will be operated by United Airlines.
The flight will be the airline’s first trans-Atlantic flight since November 2013, when it made its first transcontinental flight to New York’s JFK airport, said United spokeswoman Susan Cairncross.
The route will leave San Francisco at 12:55 p.m., arrive in Zurich at 12 p.a.m and depart at 2:30 p.p.m, Cairnlross said.
United’s first-ever transatlantic flight from the San Francisco Bay Area to Zurich was delayed earlier this year due to an emergency landing in New York.
The San Francisco-based carrier flew from San Jose, Calif., to New Orleans on Dec. 31, 2013.
United has had an international route since 2012, when United Airlines flew from Seattle to London.
The airline has had five international flights to and from New York since 2012.
United announced the new flight route in a news release.
United CEO Oscar Munoz said the new route is a “natural progression of our business strategy to continue serving our customers in Europe, Asia, Latin America and beyond.”
United Airlines, founded in 1959 and headquartered in Los Angeles, said it will continue to expand its services in the United States and around the world.
United Airlines and United Airlines Express are both owned by United Continental Holdings Inc. United Airlines will remain a privately held company and United will continue its relationship with Continental Holdings, Munoz added.
