March 30. United Airlines has begun operating direct service from New York City through John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) to the airline’s West Coast hubs, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The new flights mark the United’s return to JFK after a five-year absence when it focused largely on flights from Newark International, one of its hubs, and New York La Guardia.“United’s return to JFK reflects not only our strong commitment to the New York City area, but also to increasing service to and from the places our customers want to fly,” said Ankit Gupta, vice president of domestic network planning and scheduling for United. “With the addition of JFK, United now offers unmatched service, greater convenience, more choice and a best-in-class product for travelers throughout the New York City region as they return to the skies.”
United’s operations at JFK’s Terminal 7 will provide seamless access for customers. The lobby area offers self-service kiosks, along with eight podiums which are located steps away from the TSA check point, and the United-operated gates are a short walk from security screening. Customers will also benefit from easy connections to more than a dozen Star Alliance partners at JFK, including access to 15 destinations in 14 countries as of March 2021.
