United Airlines flies the open skies to London

13th March 2008 Print
Open Skies is bringing United’s Denver customers about two and a half hours closer to London. Customers will save at least that much time by taking United’s new, non-stop service between Denver and London, and the airline is now offering special, low fares and up to 7,500 bonus Mileage Plus miles to celebrate.

Sample fares to London are each way and are based upon required roundtrip purchase by March 26, 2008 with travel beginning by May 15. The introductory sale is for travel Monday through Wednesday for tickets purchased on United from the U.S. See below or visit for complete terms and conditions.

Sample fares include the following:

$285 – Bozeman, Mont.
$285 – Colorado Springs, Colo.
$285 – Denver, Colo.
$285 – Kalispell, Mont.

Customers may earn between 1,500 and 7,500 bonus Mileage Plus miles for members who purchase and fly by May 31, 2008. See below or visit for complete terms and conditions and to register for the bonus miles promotion.

United’s new Denver-London service is now possible with the new Open Skies agreement between the U.S. and Europe that removes the regulatory barriers to fly to London Heathrow. The agreement between the U.S. and European Union was signed on March 22, 2007 and takes effect March 30, 2008.

“We have long-supported freedom of the skies because of the tremendous benefits it brings to customers on both sides of the Atlantic, and to United,” says Michael Whitaker, United’s senior vice president – Alliances, International and Regulatory Affairs. “Customers will have more time to enjoy England’s Buckingham Palace and Big Ben, saving over two and a half hours of travel time with our non-stop service.”
