United adds SFO-Dublin route

United Airlines will start flights between San Francisco (SFO) and Dublin (DUB) on June 5.

United noted it will be the only US carrier operating from anywhere on the US West Coast to Dublin. The daily flights will be operated with a Boeing 787-8 aircraft.

“Dublin and the Silicon Valley are two regions synonymous with big tech,” said United VP-international network 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.
