Top U.S. Carriers Compete for the Coveted Edinburgh-New York Route

by amit.uniyal 2. December 2014 09:07

United Airlines and American Airlines are at a neck-to-neck competition for Edinburgh-New York flight routes. United Airlines will start offering flights between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Edinburgh Airport (EDI) from summer 2015. The carrier will operate two daily flights on this route.

On the other hand, American Airlines will also commence its daily service between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and EDI from May 7, 2015. This route will replace the airline’s six months old Edinburgh-Philadelphia route.

Round Trip Flight

The customers traveling from the Scottish capital will be pleased with the three daily nonstop services connecting Edinburgh and New York. They will also have better access to the numerous onward destinations from New York. Currently, there is only one daily nonstop service offered by United. Travelers from the United States visiting Edinburgh during summers will have better accessibility to the city as they come to attend the Edinburgh International Festival.

American as well as United Airlines will deploy Boeing 757 narrow body twin jets on the routes. The aircraft will only have Business and Economy classes. American Airlines’ flights will depart from EDI at 9.15 am and arrive in JFK at 11.50 am local time. The return flight will leave from JFK at 7.25 pm and arrive in EDI at 7.15 am the following day.

United Airlines flights operate twice daily with departures from EDI at 9.25 am and 12.05 pm. The flights will arrive in EWR at 12.10 pm and 2.50 pm local time respectively. The return flights will leave Newark at 7.55 pm and 9.45 pm and arrive in Edinburgh at 7.55 am and 9.45 am the following day respectively.

The passengers are sure to witness some changes in fares as the time of launch approaches.
