United plans to begin service on 2 May 2010 from Rome Fiumicino Airport to Chicago O'Hare International Airport. The route is now open for sale.

The new route will provide customers in Italy with the opportunity to link through United's strategic Chicago hub to other points in the US. It will also serve the important Italian tourism market for US citizens.

"The strong commercial and tourism links between Italy and the United States are longstanding. Following on from the success of our Rome - Washington service, we are pleased to launch a route that will serve both cargo and leisure customers, further demonstrating our commitment to expanding our global and European network," said Marcel Fuchs, United Airlines Managing Director, Sales, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India.

This route will be served by a Boeing 767-300 aircraft. The Boeing-767 is configured with 6 United First seats, 26 United Business seats and 151 United Economy class seats, including 67 Economy Plus seats. Customers seated in United First and United Business customers will enjoy United's International Premier Travel Experience, which includes lie-flat seats, iPod connectivity, more than 150 hours of movies and television shows on-demand, and a selection of appetizers and entrees designed by world-renowned chef Charlie Trotter.
