The service will commence in January 2013

United Airlines, on Thursday, announced the first international route for the airline’s newest addition to its fleet, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, saying it will operate non-stop 787 service five days a week between its Houston hub and Lagos, Nigeria, beginning January 7, 2013. 

The American airline will also operate daily, nonstop 787 service from its Houston hub to Amsterdam and London Heathrow on a temporary basis.

“The 787 is the right aircraft for these routes because of its many passenger-friendly amenities and superior operating economics,” said United’s Senior Vice President of Network, Greg Hart. “With 50 787s on order, we look forward to the many new route opportunities that will become available to United and our customers in the future.”
