Recent updates say that United Airlines said that they are having a plan to start nearly 50 domestic and around 23 International flights and reach 40% of the schedule next month as compared with October last year. Therefore, United airlines have an increased plan to fly 34% of its schedule in the month of September. However, the Chicago based flight said that they will add a limited capacity to the schedule just because the pandemic continues to depress travel demand.
United’s vice president of Domestic Network Planning says something in a statement, he says that we continue to data-driven and realistic in approach to rebuilding the network of ours. Furthermore, he says that October is a very slow month of travel that’s why we are scheduling each and everything properly and this just to reflect seasonal changes in customer demand while resuming the service. Moreover, we are planning to add capacity on routes where we are seeing increased customer demand for travel.
Probing further, the airlines said that they are going to add more flights just to meet the traveler’s demand. Domestically, USA plans to fly 46% of its full schedule in October, up from 38% schedules domestically this month.
