Earlier this summer, we learned that United Airlines is putting an end to their operations at New York City’s John F. Kennedy airport later this year. This change will take place October 25, as United seeks to capitalize on the traffic of one of their largest hubs in Newark.
The proposed plan to double down at its Newark hub is pending regulatory approval for United to acquire Delta’s slots at Newark in place of United’s slots at JFK.
In addition to this shift in operations, United is also planning to reveal its Premium Service to the regularly scheduled flights running from Newark to Los Angeles and San Francisco. They’ve already upgraded their BusinessFirst class cabins with flatbed seats and other amenities, typically associated with international routes, in hopes to win over the lucrative business travelers.
To further attract travelers, a multi-million dollar renovation is already underway in the lobby of Terminal C and bringing with it new lounge designs to all United Clubs in the airport.
