The US airline is a founding member of Star Alliance™. In 2022, United and United Express® carried more than 144 million passengers. United boasts the most extensive route network of any North American carrier, with US hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

The direct service to Washington, D.C. is being offered for the first time from the German capital region. New York/Newark has been an integral part of the flight programme from Berlin since 2005. Initially, long-haul routes were served with Continental Airlines from Berlin-Tegel, but since 2010 they have been flown by United as a result of the merger of the two airlines. Due to the corona pandemic, the route was interrupted between 2020 and 2022.
