United Airlines adds flights to Europe as countries reopen

(Sharecast News) - United Airlines Holdings said on Monday that it was adding three flights to destinations in Europe from July as countries start reopening to vaccinated travelers.
The airline said in a statement that it would add direct flights to Croatia, Greece and Iceland, the bookings for which have already begun, reported Reuters.

The rollout of the European Union's vaccination programme was a breath of fresh air for airlines and a tourism sector in general that has been hit the hardest by the pandemic and the ensuing lockdowns around the world.

Customers travelling with United Airlines can upload their Covid-19 testing and vaccine documents to get them certified ahead of the check-in.

United, which is slated to report earnings on Monday after markets close in New York, said earlier in April that it was expecting a 66% drop in first-quarter revenue to $3.2bn from the same period in 2019. It had previously forecast a drop of between 65% and 70%.
