New Route: United to connect San Francisco and Dublin with direct flights

Traveling between the Silicon Valley and Dublin, Ireland – two of the world’s leading centers of technology and innovation – will soon get a lot easier.

United Airlines announced earlier that it will launch new daily nonstop service from its hub at San Francisco International Airport to the Irish capital beginning June 5, 2020. United will be the only U.S. airline to offer daily flights direct to Dublin from the West Coast.

Dublin and the Silicon Valley are two regions synonymous with big tech. Many global tech companies have a major footprint in both regions, and they need a carrier with an extensive worldwide network to help conveniently connect their business. As the only U.S. airline to serve Ireland from the West Coast, United is uniquely suited to provide the connectivity these companies and economies need to continue thriving.

Patrick Quayle, United’s Vice President of International Network.

United will operate its new San Francisco-Dublin daily nonstop flights with the fuel-efficient Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. With the launch of this new service, United will have more daily business class seats between Dublin and the U.S. this summer than any other domestic airline.
