United Airlines inaugurated its direct flight from Milan Malpensa Airport in Italy to Chicago O’Hare Airport in the US on Saturday 7 May.

Milan Malpensa and Milan Linate, which are both operated by SEA, have noted strong traffic recovery this summer with European and North African destinations. However, for its long-haul network North America will be the main driver of recovery with 66 flight per week.

“Carriers are showing important signs of confidence in us by not only returning to offer the historic connections at our airports, but also investing in new destinations. With its daily fight to Chicago, United Airlines is now the emblem of this,” said Andrea Tucci, VP Aviation Business Development at SEA.

“This new destination represents one of the most important novelties of the summer season,” she continued. “This new route operated by United alongside the daily flight to New York (EWR), opens the door to the United States through the carrier’s Chicago O’Hare network and adds quality to the travel offering from our airports, particularly to the Pacific Coast. We are extremely pleased to be here today to celebrate the launch of this connection to one of the most attractive locations in the US.”
