You know what? United Airlines has a whole heap of exciting news! That’s right, they have announced the opening of a seasonal transatlantic route between Chicago and Athens this May. Yes, I said Athens!

From May 17th to August 12th you can fly to the beautiful capital of Greece every single day. Not only that but they’re using Boeing 787-8s on these 5,447 mile flights. So you’ll be flying in style alright.

But wait there’s more! Norse Atlantic Airways will also now be offering flights between ATH and JFK as well as CDG (Paris) to Los Angeles. With all these new routes there are even more ways for travellers like us to see the world and create unforgettable memories.

Oh, and did I mention that United will be the second airline flying nonstop from Chicago O’Hare International Airport to Athens International Airport? Looks like American Airlines have some competition because their seasonal service starts on May 6th!

But wait, there's more! United isn't stopping there. They've got two more seasonal services to Athens from Newark Liberty International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport. That's right, three chances to soak up that Greek sunshine!

And hold onto your hats because United is also adding some cool routes to Alaska and Canada. They're going big with 150 daily flights to Canada from all seven of their U.S. hubs. Plus, they're shouting about their "largest schedule to Alaska in the past decade." Go big or go home, right?

From May 23rd, you can catch daily seasonal flights between Washington Dulles International Airport and Stevens Anchorage International Airport (alaska). They're even revving up the engines for daily seasonal flights from Washington Dulles International Airport to Vancouver International Airport from May 2nd.

But wait, there's more! United is spreading the love to Denver International Airport too. Starting from May 23rd, you can jet off to Fairbanks, Alaska, every day. And guess what? They're bringing back the year-round service between Denver and Winnipeg Richardson International Airport, starting the same day. It's like a double whammy of good news!

Oh, and don't forget about those other sweet summer connections. United is rekindling the flame with Chicago O’Hare to Winnipeg and Quebec City, as well as launching a new route between Newark and Halifax on May 23rd.

And last but not least, Houston Intercontinental is back in the game with service to Ontario, California, from May. It's like the comeback tour of the century!

So, whether you're dreaming of ancient ruins in Athens, breathtaking landscapes in Alaska, or poutine in Quebec City, United Airlines has got you covered this summer. Get ready to spread your wings and explore!
