Member News – Ten New Domestic Routes Landing at United Airlines Just in time for Spring Travel
November 30th, 2017


New routes and an optimized schedule at Chicago O’Hare reinforces commitment to provide customers an unrivaled global network

United Airlines (UAL) today announced it will offer customers more opportunities to travel from five of its U.S. hubs to 10 cities in California, Florida, Montana, New York, North Carolina, Oregon and Texas beginning in April 2018. Additionally, the airline announced it will optimize its O’Hare International Airport (ORD) schedule to provide shorter connection times and more options for customers connecting through Chicago.

“We continue to focus on making United the first choice for customers when planning their domestic and international travel,” said Grant Whitney, United’s vice president of Domestic Network Planning. “Our new daily services connect customers to important business markets and our new seasonal summer routes provide more customers with convenient access to enjoy our National Parks.”

New year round service

United will now serve Wilmington, North Carolina from Chicago and Washington Dulles and Elmira, New York from New York/Newark. The full list of new routes includes:

Hub New Destination Frequency Begins Aircraft
Chicago (ORD) El Paso (ELP) 2 flights daily April 9 E170
Chicago (ORD) Wilmington (ILM) 2 flights daily April 9 ERJ
Denver (DEN) Jacksonville (JAX) 1 flight daily April 9 E175
Los Angeles (LAX) Redmond (RDM) 2 flights daily April 9 CRJ
Los Angeles (LAX) Medford (MFR) 2 flights daily April 9 CRJ
New York/Newark (EWR) Elmira (ELM) 2 flights daily April 9 ERJ
Washington-Dulles (IAD) Wilmington (ILM) 2 flights daily April 9 ERJ

With United’s new summer service, more customers will have easier access to popular outdoor destinations like Yosemite National Park near Fresno; Glacier National Park near Kalispell and Yellowstone National Park near Missoula.

Hub New Destination Frequency Begins Aircraft
Chicago (ORD) Fresno (FAT) Daily June 8 CRJ
Los Angeles (LAX) Kalispell (FCA) Daily July 7 CRJ
Los Angeles (LAX) Missoula (MSO) Daily June 7 CRJ

Enhancing operations in Chicago

Beginning in February 2018, a newly enhanced bank structure at O’Hare will mean shorter connection times and better access to more destinations for customers connecting through the carrier’s Chicago hub. This operations enhancement, already in place at United’s Houston hub, will enable United to greatly improve connectivity throughout its industry-leading global route network.
