Next year, United Airlines is growing in Switzerland and will offer even more comfort. Starting from March 29, 2020, United flies daily from Zurich to Chicago with a Boeing 767-300ER. The newly configured aircraft offers more premium seats to its passengers with 16 additional United Polaris Business Class seats and a total of 46 seats in the premium cabin. The jet also features 22 seats in United Premium Plus as well as 47 seats in Economy Plus and 52 in Economy Class. Overall, United is the US carrier with the most extensive flight schedule between Switzerland and the United States and with the most premium seats onboard.
The new flight UA12 takes off from Zurich at 9:40am and lands in the “windy city” at 12:40pm. On the way back, UA3 starts in Chicago at 4:15pm and gets to the Swiss metropolis at 8:00am the next morning.
Chicago is not only an important center for commerce and business; it is also United’s home hub. From O’Hare Airport, which is the sixth busiest airport in the world, United and United Express offer almost 600 daily flights to over 200 destinations in the US, Europe, Asia, Mexico, Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.
United Airlines is serving Switzerland since 20 years. The new flights from Zurich to Chicago will become United’s sixth service out of Switzerland. In addition, the airline flies daily from Geneva and Zurich to New York/Newark and to Washington/Dulles. Seasonally, United operates Zurich-San Francisco.
