«We’re backing more direct international flights to Melbourne because we know the critical role they play in supporting Victorian businesses and creating jobs,» said Martin Pakula, Victorian Minister for Industry Support and Recovery. «Having more direct flights from the U.S. means it is even easier for visitors to come to Victoria and enjoy everything we are famous for – whether that’s our major sporting events, food scene or cultural institutions.»

United began offering direct service to Melbourne from Los Angeles in 2014 and launched non-stop flights between San Francisco and Melbourne in October of 2019, prior to the onset of the pandemic.
