News broke yesterday of a new UK route from the American airline United.
Newcastle (my home airport) will be the proud new base point for a flight to New York.
Running an almost daily service in to Newark Liberty Airport (EWR), each flight departs at a delightfully civilised time of 09:10 getting in to Newark for noon.
The outbound flights run Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday with inbound omitting the Tuesday flight.
The summer season route will run from May 2015 until September 2015.
With United having a whole heap of internal routes, it will make a great hub for us Northerners to explore more of America without travelling to London or Manchester.
United are also members of the Star Alliance network which means you can earn and burn air miles on a variety of other airlines!
