United Airlines will begin daily non-stop service between its hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Buenos Aires’ Ministro Pistarini International Airport (IATA code EZE) on April 6.
The flight will be United Airlines’ first service from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina and one of the largest cities in South America. The new flight replaces United’s non-stop service between Washington Dulles International Airport and Buenos Aires.
United Airlines also offers daily non-stop flights between Houston and Buenos Aires.
The new flight, UA847, will depart EWR at 9:50 p.m. and arrive at EZE at 9:35 a.m. the next day, local time. The return flight, UA846, will depart EZE daily at 8:10 p.m., landing at EWR at 6:13 a.m. the next day, local time.
United will operate the service with Boeing 767-300ER equipment, each aircraft configured with 183 seats – six in United Global First, 26 in United BusinessFirst and 151 in United Economy, including 71 Economy Plus seats with added legroom and increased personal space.
Customers in United Global First and United BusinessFirst have access to more than 150 hours of on-demand entertainment on 15.4-inch/39centimeter personal monitors. They can also connect their iPods via dedicated outlets on their flat-bed seats, and are offered exclusive menu options.
From its hub at Newark Liberty International Airport, United offers flights to more than 200 destinations throughout the Americas, of which more than 100 are served non-stop. United claims no other airline serves as many non-stop destinations or offers as many seats from the New York area.
