United Airlines has announced the resumption of its Edinburgh flights for 2022, in a move which will make it the largest airline flying between Scotland and the US.

First up in New York Newark, which will launch on 5th March. This will be a year-round service.

There will be one flight per day using a Boeing 757-200, which is a narrow bodied aircraft. These aircraft have 16 flat-bed business class seats, 45 Economy Plus seats and 108 economy seats.

Summer services to Chicago and Washington DC will begin on 7th May.

Both routes will have a daily service, and both will use a Boeing 757-200.

Whilst United Airlines is a Star Alliance member, you can earn Avios when you fly United by signing up to Aer Lingus AerClub and crediting your flight there. You can then use ‘Combine My Avios’ to move your points into your British Airways account.

We will take another look at this feature over the weekend as it is something that many Avios collectors do not know about. You cannot, unfortunately, redeem Avios for United flights via AerClub.
