United’s return flight will leave SJU at 3:55 p.m. and land at ORD at 7:13 p.m. local time.

The airline will operate the route with Boeing 737-900 jets (or possibly 737-900ERs) seating 20 in United First, 51 in Economy Plus and 96 in Economy.

United Airlines says it will add a second daily flight on the Chicago-San Juan route for the festive holiday season, from December 4 through January 5.

“San Juan has been one of United’s most popular Caribbean destinations for more than two decades,” says Millie Uriarte, United Airlines’ director, Latin America onshore & Caribbean sales.
“United is committed to serving the Chicago market and Latin America and the Caribbean. With the addition of Chicago flights, United will offer nonstop service between Puerto Rico and five of our hubs,” adds Uriarte.

Founded by Spanish colonists in 1521, San Juan is a city of contrasts: from cobblestone streets and colonial architecture in Old San Juan and the famous Morro Fort, to major hotel chains, restaurants and upscale shopping centers.

San Juan, which is the capital of Puerto Rico, is an important seaport and is also the island’s manufacturing, financial, cultural and tourism center.
