United Airlines has submitted a formal application to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for authority to increase service between Newark Liberty International Airport and Shanghai Pudong beginning in June 2020.

“Our application for a second daily flight between Newark and Shanghai is in response to the demand for travel between each country’s financial center, which has grown annually for the last several years,” said Oscar Munoz, United’s Chief Executive Officer. “If approved, this additional flight will help facilitate the development of increased business and tourism, provide additional capacity for customers and further enhance United’s position both as the airline of choice to China and our hub at Newark Liberty International Airport as the premier East Coast gateway to Asia.”
