United Airlines has announced its first six international routes to be served by the airline’s brand new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner aircraft.

Beginning in March 2019, United’s 787-10 jets will operate on services from New York Newark Airport to Frankfurt and Tel Aviv. In addition, Barcelona, Brussels, Dublin and Paris will also be served by 787-10 Dreamliners later in the year.

United is proud to offer more seats between New York and Europe than any other carrier and our Boeing 787-10 aircraft based in New York/Newark will enable us to connect even more New York City customers to Europe and beyond. We are thrilled to announce six international cities that will be served with this aircraft and we look forward to offering our customers all of the comforts and services of our most advanced aircraft.Patrick Quayle, United's Vice President of International Network

The airline previously announced its first 787-10 aircraft will begin operating between New York/Newark and Los Angeles and San Francisco in January 2019.

United was the first North American airline to take delivery of the 787-10 and is also the first airline in the world to have the entire family of Boeing Dreamliners in its fleet. United currently operates 25 Boeing 787-9 and twelve 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. The airline expects to take delivery of additional 13 Boeing 787-10 jets over the next two years.
