United Airlines will begin its seasonal direct flights to and from Athens and the New York/Newark hub beginning in May, it said on Monday, ANA reports.

The direct flights will run to end on October 30, while the airline advised it would also initiate its seasonal direct flight from Washington DC's Dulles airport on May 7.
