United grows US network

Ten new domestic routes are being introduced by United Airlines from April with flights from five of its US hubs to destinations in California, Florida, Montana, New York, North Carolina, Oregon and Texas.

The carrier also said it will refine its schedule at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) to provide shorter connection times and more options for customers connecting through the city.

Vice-president of domestic network planning Grant Whitney said: “We continue to focus on making United the first choice for customers when planning their domestic and international travel.

“Our new daily services connect passengers to important business markets and new seasonal summer routes will give more customers convenient access to enjoy the US National Parks and other attractions.”

In the new year-round schedules, United will now serve Wilmington in North Carolina from Chicago and Washington Dulles and Elmira, New York from New York-Newark.

The updated operations in Chicago beginning in February involve a newly-enhanced bank structure at O’Hare which United says will mean shorter connection times and better access to more destinations for passengers connecting through the hub. 

The airline has already launched a similar programme at its Houston hub, which it says is enabling it to improve connectivity particularly for international passengers.
