United Airlines has been increasing service over the last few months despite the current downturn and now they’re gearing up for (pent up) winter travel.

In a nutshell: United Airlines announced the international winter schedule with eight new routes + additional flights to 19 destinations in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Latin America.

First, the new nonstop routes United Airlines is starting in December.

New service will be added between Los Angeles and Costa Rica (San Jose) and San Pedro Sula, Honduras.  Denver gets service to Belize City, Belize and San Jose, Costa Rica. Washington, D.C. travelers will gain service to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and service will return between Cleveland and Cancun, Mexico.

United will begin new nonstop service between Liberia, Costa Rica and both Los Angeles and San Francisco starting in January, but these flights are still subject to government approval.

What’s the Best Part?

Sun worshippers can explore added service to beach destinations in Mexico including Cancun, San Jose del Cabo and Puerto Vallarta with more weekend service to Cozumel from Chicago, Denver and Houston. United Airlines is also restarting service between Houston and Mazatlan on December 19.

It Gets Better …
