United Airlines has celebrated its 30 years of service in Australia on February 12. The airline offers its Australian passengers easy and convenient flights to various American destinations.
United started its service in Australia on February 12, 1986, with the flight UA815 from Los Angeles to Sydney. After 30 years, Australian passengers now have access to more than 200 daily connections to more than 90 destinations throughout the United States via its Los Angeles and San Francisco hubs.
