American carrier United Airlines said on Monday it would add more than 400 daily flights to its July schedule and increase services to reopened European destinations as easing pandemic restrictions spur summer travel demand.

Summer travel bookings rose 214% from 2020 levels, the airline said. United added it was giving travelers more options to visit Europe by adding a fourth weekly flight to Dubrovnik as well as more seats to Athens. [Reuters]
