United Airlines inaugurates Brussels to Chicago service

7th April 2010 Print

United Airlines has celebrated the inauguration of its new daily nonstop service between Brussels and Chicago. 

The route will be operated flying a newly reconfigured Boeing 767-300 which features United’s new premium cabins, including lie-flat beds in business class, 15.4-inch personal television screens, and more than 150 hours of video entertainment options.

The inaugural, which was attended by a number of VIPs including Richard Eason, Deputy Chief of Mission, U.S. Embassy in Belgium, Ruben Sicking, Director Operations Brussels Airport and Greg Kaldahl, United vice president - Resource Planning, was marked with a ribbon cutting just before the plane departed.

Greg Kaldahl said: “We are pleased to introduce this new route, which is in addition to our daily Washington service from Brussels. It will provide greater choice for our customers who now benefit from the convenience of direct services linking the cities, as well as excellent connections through our Chicago hub.”

United continues to roll out its multi-million dollar investment in new lie-flat first and business class seats on international flights, providing an enhanced level of comfort and convenience to passengers.

Members of United’s Mileage Plus programme who hold Premier status or above may enjoy complimentary seating in Economy Plus, giving them up to five extra inches of legroom on the Boeing 767-300 international routes.
