United Airlines, which has seen an uptick in domestic travel in recent weeks and is hoping to see the same on its international routes, announced Tuesday that it will be resuming its once-a-day flights from Newark Liberty International Airport to Lisbon, Portugal, on July 1.
Portugal announced it will reopen to U.S. tourists with proof of a negative COVID-19 test, beginning Tuesday. Travelers over the age of 2 must either show a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of departure or a rapid antigen test taken within 24 hours of departure.
With the addition of Lisbon, United will now make 30 daily flights to Europe from Newark, to these 16 locations:
- Athens, Greece
- Barcelona, Spain
- Dubrovnik, Croatia
- Frankfurt, Germany
- Lisbon, Portugal
- Reykjavik, Iceland
United, which makes Newark one of its domestic hubs, is one of the state’s 10 biggest companies.
