Get ready to pop some bubbly on your flight to Italy this summer. United Airlines is offering free sparkling cocktails onboard select flights for the next few months.
United Airlines is teaming up with Spritz Society to offer its award-winning sparkling cocktails on a few of its seasonal flights to Italy. You can grab one on a flight from Chicago to Milan starting today and between Newark and Rome starting May 26, 2022. Only the grapefruit flavor will be available onboard, and the free drinks will end in August.
Not on those flights? Don’t worry. Travelers can buy Spritz Society cocktails at United Club locations at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport. Cocktails are $2 and are available through June 6th at O’Hare and June 26th at Newark. Both the grapefruit and the blood orange flavors will be available for purchase inside the United Clubs.
About Spritz Society
Spritz drinks trace back to the 1800s in the northeast Italian region of Veneto. Demand for premixed cocktails continue to rise in recent years, and the company says highlighting them onboard select United flights is the perfect matchup.
“Spritz cocktails have become synonymous with summer and offer a taste of Europe. Given the drink’s origin, we thought what better place to serve them than onboard our flights to Italy,” Luc Bondar, United Vice President of Marketing & Loyalty and President of MileagePlus, said in a statement.
