United Airlines will begin daily non-stop service between its hub at Newark Liberty International Airport and Buenos Aires, Argentina's, Ministro Pistarini (Ezeiza) International Airport on April 6.

This is United's first service from Newark Liberty to Buenos Aires. The airline also offers daily non-stop flights between Houston and Buenos Aires.

“The New York/Newark-Buenos Aires route gives East Coast travellers direct connections between two of the major business and tourism destinations in the Americas,” said John Slater, United's vice president sales for the Americas.

The new flight, UA847, will depart New York/Newark at 9:50 p.m., arriving in Buenos Aires at 9:35 a.m. the next day. The return flight, UA846, will depart Buenos Aires daily at 8:10 p.m., arriving in New York/Newark at 6:13 a.m. the next day.

The flights will be operated with Boeing 767-300 aircraft with a total of 183 seats: six in United Global First, 26 in United BusinessFirst and 151 in United Economy, including 71 Economy Plus seats with added legroom and increased personal space.

Customers in United Global First and United Business-First may enjoy more than 150 hours of on-demand entertainment on 39cm personal monitors, connect their iPods via dedicated outlets, relax on flat-bed seats and savour world-class cuisine with United exclusive menu options.

The new service replaces United nonstop service between Washington and Buenos Aires. From its Newark Liberty hub, United offers an extensive network of flights to more than 200 destinations throughout the Americas, of which more than 100 are served non-stop. No other airline serves as many non-stop destinations or offers as many seats from the New York area as Unit

    Well, I'm going to be a bit more positive and welcome this one with open arms.

    Getting long-haul seats on flights in and out of Buenos Aires can be a royal pain in the arse - and at times a near impossibility - so that instead of flying directly in/out of Buenos Aires you end up taking pot luck on whatever flight you can get in/out .. and then build the rest of your travel plans around that. This can easily add an extra day, or two, to travel arrangements and often leads to the bizarre situation where you fly out of Buenos Aires on an Air Fleabag flight to Shitsville, Nowhere; for a connecting flight to Sao Paulo, or Rio, where you kick your heels in transit for ten hours, or more, whilst you wait for a long-haul flight which left Buenos Aires the day after you did, but was fully booked for the first short leg ... and almost empty for the rest.

    So, anything that is long-distance non-stop and allows a quick transit at a busy major airport just has to be a huge improvement.
