If you’re in New York City this evening, look up at the skyline. United will light two iconic New York City buildings blue at sunset to celebrate its return to JFK Airport after a five-year absence.
United Airlines Lights Up New York City Skyscrapers
Tomorrow, United Airlines returns to New York Kennedy with service to Los Angeles and San Francisco. It has been five years since United served JFK. I had the pleasure of flying on one of the last flights to JFK, which you can read about here.
To celebrate its return to JFK, United will light up two of Manhattan’s skyscrapers – One Bryant Park and One Five One West 42 – in “United blue.”
The two buildings will be lit up starting at 7:15pm ET on Saturday until 2 a.m. Sunday morning.
If you are not in New York, you can watch a live stream of the buildings here.
