CHICAGO - United Airlines announced the addition of 11 new routes from its hubs in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. United's new summer service, beginning in June 2019, will connect customers to popular summer vacation destinations in California, Colorado, Florida, Oregon, Michigan and Nova Scotia. Tickets are now available for purchase.
In 2018, United introduced 93 new routes across the United States, including 15 international routes – adding more flights than any U.S. airline. Today's additions are part of United's 78 domestic routes announced this year and build on the airline's record network expansion.
"We are focused on giving our customers more reasons to choose to fly United Airlines," said Ankit Gupta, United's vice president of Domestic Network Planning and Scheduling. "With nearly 100 new routes announced this year, we continue to deliver on our commitment to build a global network with destinations where our customers want to fly."
