Picture - United Airlines earned $473 million in the third quarter as travel demand stayed strong.

United Airlines on Tuesday reported a $473 million profit for the three months ending in September, underscoring the resilience of air travel demand during the spread of the Delta variant of the coronavirus.

The airline, which said it had $7.8 billion in operating revenue during the quarter, also expressed optimism about the coming months, noting that government officials around the world are slowly easing travel restrictions and companies are starting to send employees on more business trips.

“We’re solidly on track to achieve the targets we set for 2022,” Scott Kirby, the airline’s chief executive, said in a statement. “From the return of business travel and the planned reopening of Europe and early indications for opening in the Pacific, the headwinds we’ve faced are turning to tailwinds.”
