Earlier, US airlines announced a sharp reduction in international traffic against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic and the closure of borders, as well as the ban on entry to the United States from many countries.

“Travel demand continues to fall, and United continues to change its schedule accordingly. But our airline knows that some people around the world have been displaced, they still need to return home. Although United's international schedule will still be reduced by about 90% in April, the airline will continue to carry out six daily flights to these destinations," the report said.

In particular, daily flights will be operated from New York to Frankfurt, London and Tel Aviv, from Houston to Brazilian Sao Paulo, from San Francisco to Tokyo and Sydney.

In addition, flights from New York to Amsterdam, Munich, Sao Paulo and Brussels, from Washington to London and from San Francisco to Frankfurt will be returned to the schedule.

Before the coronavirus epidemic, United had almost 120 destinations linking the United States with 48 countries.

United Airlines is the third to fourth airline in the world in terms of the number of passengers carried on flights, the number of aircraft and other indicators.
