Traveling between the Silicon Valley and Dublin, Ireland – two of the world’s leading centers of technology and innovation – will soon get a lot easier. United Airlines announced that it will launch new daily nonstop service from its hub at San Francisco International Airport to the Irish capital beginning June 5, 2020.
“Dublin and the Silicon Valley are two regions synonymous with big tech,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s Vice President of International Network.
“Many global tech companies have a major footprint in both regions, and they need a carrier with an extensive worldwide network to help conveniently connect their business. As the only U.S. airline to serve Ireland from the West Coast, United is uniquely suited to provide the connectivity these companies and economies need to continue thriving.”
United will operate its new San Francisco-Dublin daily nonstop flights with the fuel-efficient Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner. With the launch of this new service, United will have more daily business class seats between Dublin and the U.S. this summer than any other domestic airline.
Schedule (Beginning June 5, 2020)
Flight 852 departs San Francisco at 3:55 p.m., arrives Dublin at 9:45 a.m.+1
Flight 853 departs Dublin at 11:50 a.m., arrives San Francisco at 2:20 p.m.
United has served Ireland for more than two decades. With the addition of San Francisco, the airline will offer flights to Dublin from four of its hubs, including Chicago O’Hare, Washington Dulles and Newark / New York. United provides seasonal service to Shannon, Ireland from Newark / New York as well.
