UNITED Airlines hosted a number of events in Sydney recently to celebrate the carrier’s inaugural flight from Houston, Texas, touching down in Sydney on 20 January.

The new service will open up 70 new one-stop destinations for travellers coming out of Sydney, and is expected to attract 27,000 new visitors and inject $50m into the local economy.

Pictured at the USA Consul General’s residence in Double Bay are some of the United Airlines staff from the carrier’s Sydney and Chicago offices.
