SYDNEY Airport has welcomed United Airlines’ announcement that it will commence a daily Houston-Sydney service from 20 Jan (TD 08 Sep).
Outgoing SYD md & ceo Kerrie Mather said the new service provided an important connection with the largest city in the southern United States.
“Houston is an extremely powerful transport hub, with this service connecting Sydney to 70 cities in key US and South American destinations.”
The flight will operate using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft with 252 seats, adding 184,000 seats per year.
It is the sixth US city destination served by Sydney Airport.
