Service to New York/Newark from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport Resumes in October

This marks the first time MHT offers nonstop service to Newark since March 2019. Flights are operated by United Express on the premium CRJ-550 aircraft.


[MANCHESTER, NH] – July 8, 2021 – MANCHESTER-BOSTON REGIONAL AIRPORT (MHT) is excited to announce that United Airlines will resume nonstop service to New York/Newark on October 5, 2021. United will operate two daily flights between Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

“As the country continues to return to travel, we are pleased to offer Manchester customers the only non-stop flights to the New York City metro and convenient connections to destinations worldwide served from our global gateway at Newark Liberty International Airport,” said Ankit Gupta, vice president of network planning and scheduling at United. “And customers traveling on this route will get to experience our CRJ-550, which is the world’s first and only 50-seat regional aircraft that offers first-class seats and additional amenities such as Wi-Fi.”

With their recently returned service to Washington, D.C. via Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and now service to EWR, United will connect MHT to 106 domestic and international markets, including 62 served through both IAD and EWR as well as 31 new ones served only through EWR.

“Resuming service to Newark has been a desire of the community since it stopped in 2019,” said Airport Director Ted Kitchens, A.A.E. “Connecting to a second United hub provides passengers with more options and flexibility when traveling to and from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport to our nonstop and one-stop destinations across the globe.”

United’s route to Newark adds 31 new, one-stop destinations for MHT passengers, including international destinations such as Athens, Greece; Tel Aviv, Israel; Johannesburg, South Africa; London, England and Tokyo, Japan.

“This is great news for Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and New Hampshire residents,” said Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig. “United’s route to Newark brings more exciting opportunities to Manchester, allowing more passengers to Fly MHT and easily reach their destinations.”

The flights to EWR are scheduled to depart Manchester at 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. Returning flights from Newark, New Jersey, are scheduled to arrive at MHT at 11:29 a.m. and 8:23 p.m.
