United’s been announcing new routes left and right the past few months, especially out of San Francisco (SFO). And the expansion shows no sign of slowing down.

Spanish news site ABC de Sevilla reports that United plans to launch nonstop service between Newark (EWR) and Seville, Spain, in May 2020. The airline is expected to sign an agreement with the city council in the coming weeks to make the route official. This would be the first long-haul route out of the city’s Sevilla International Airport (SVQ). The service would be seasonal, flown five times per week, similar to Delta’s service to Malaga (AGP), which is about two hours away from Sevilla.

There are no details yet as to which aircraft will be used to operate this route. Although the route is within range of the airline’s Boeing 737 MAX 9, the 757-200 or 767s are more likely options.

So far this year, United has launched new routes to Tahiti (PPT), Auckland (AKL), Seoul (ICN), Amsterdam (AMS) and Toronto (YYZ) out of its San Francisco hub. Flights to New Delhi (DEL) and Melbourne (MEL) will also launch out of SFO later this year.
