AMMAN — United Airlines on Thursday announced a new three-times weekly nonstop service between Queen Alia International Airport in Amman and its hub at Washington, DC, starting May 7, 2022 (subject to government approval). 
 
With the introduction of this new capital service, the first-ever nonstop service between Amman and Washington, DC, United will be the only US airline flying from Amman, according to a statement from the airline company. 
 
The new service from Amman is part of United’s largest transatlantic expansion in its  history. The expansion includes 10 new routes and five new destinations: Amman, Jordan;  Bergen, Norway; Azores, Portugal; Mallorca, Spain and Tenerife in the Spanish Canary Islands. All of the new routes, which are set to begin in Spring 2022, are not served by any other North American carrier. 
 
Additionally, next year, United will add new flights to five popular European destinations, Berlin, Dublin, Milan, Munich and Rome, as well as launch seven routes that were  interrupted due to the pandemic from Bangalore, Frankfurt, Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, Nice and  Zurich. Flights are subject to government approval. 
 
“We look forward to the full recovery of international travel and are committed to continuing to leverage our leading global network in new, exciting ways,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s Senior  Vice President International Network and Alliances, in the statement.  
 
“We are excited to announce the first-ever nonstop service between Amman and  Washington, DC and the expansion of our global route network,” said Marcel Fuchs, United’s Managing Director International Sales, in the statement. 
 
“As the only US airline flying from Amman directly to the  US, our new service strengthens our international route network and provides our customers from Jordan with convenient one-stop connections via our Washington Dulles hub to other destinations  across the Americas.” 
 
The new route is subject to government approval and tickets will be available for purchase  on united.com and the United app in the coming weeks.
