With the travel industry showing no signs of slowing down, more and more airlines are adding new routes to their networks.

For United, their route map is already jam-packed, but one popular city for Americans is being added for the first time in the airline's history.

United Airlines Announces New Nonstop Flights to Marrakesh

Across the vast Atlantic is one of the best destinations to immerse yourself in out-of-body cultural experiences.

There is no U.S. city that comes even close to being comparable to the medieval city of Marrakesh, Morocco.

Beginning October 24th, Americans will be able to fly nonstop from Newark (EWR) and spend their days perusing mazes of alleyways and bustling souks and snapping photos of breathtaking architecture, such as the Koutoubia Mosque.

This new route will be the only direct U.S. flight to Marrakesh. Travelers can choose from three weekly flights on a Boeing 767-300ER plane.

However, tickets are not on sale just yet, but travelers are encouraged to continue checking United.com for updates!

Explore the City of Eternal Spring: Medellin with United

Colombia is super popular with travelers right now, but it does come with a mixed bag of reviews.

Depending on where you go, the country can be quite iffy when it comes to tourist safety, even resulting in a fairly recent security alert issued by the U.S. Embassy.

That being said, Medellin has long been a haven for expats, and even more so now that the digital nomad craze has taken over.

Given its warm climate, The ‘City of Eternal Spring' is an awesome, affordable getaway any time of year to explore this scenic mountainous city.

Travelers will have to wait until October 27th to book a trip here with United, the airline's first time ever venturing into Medellin.

The new flight will take off from Houston (IAH) with daily service. Tickets for this route are not yet on sale either.

United Airlines Announces New Nonstop Flights to Shanghai

Is 2024 the year Americans are ready to embrace China as one of the premiere destinations in Asia? Time will tell.

United is not the only airline heading back to one of the most iconic countries on the planet, but surely travelers will feel more comfortable taking one of their favorite carriers.

This new Los Angeles (LAX) to Shanghai (PVG) route is a reboot. For obvious reasons, it was shut down in recent years, but China is open for business again.

Despite travelers' hesitations, the former popular route is now ready for a relaunch. Travelers can head to the vibrant bustling city of Shanghai with flight offerings four times per week beginning August 29th.

Unlike the other new routes, tickets are on sale already, and prices are a doozy! Round-trip Economy seats go between $1500 and $1700, while Business Class seats go upwards of $ 5,500.

Bonus: New Connection Route To Paradise

The Philippines is one of the most beautiful and affordable exotic getaways in Asia. Truth be told, more Americans have found their way there for its wondrous landscapes, safety, and minimal language barriers.

While the capital city of Manila is a worthwhile trip in its own right, a trip to the Philippines without visiting one of the country's many stunning islands would be a real shame.

United has laser-focused on Cebu as the latest destination added to its network, but U.S. travelers will have to make a bit of a longer trek to reach it.

The official new route will begin July 31st from Tokyo (NRT) to Cebu (CEB) with daily flights on a 737-800 aircraft.

Americans can easily connect from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Newark, and Houston and arrive in paradise, where a bustling city and jaw-dropping beaches await.

Cebu is very affordable and is slowly but surely becoming more popular for digital nomads, and it's easy to see why.

This narrow island stretches over 100 miles with gorgeous beaches dispersed across the coastline, and historic Cebu City itself, the former capital of the Philippines, is quite an underrated concrete jungle.
