United Airlines has expanded its domestic route network to connect its customers to 22 new destinations from six of its hubs. They will now have nonstop service from Chicago, Newark/New York and Washington DC to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. With these new routes United now provides its customers with the most nonstop service to Hilton Head Island then any other airline. Tickets are now available to purchase for these new routes.
Ankit Gupta, United Airlines vice president of Domestic Network Planning stated, “The expansion to Hilton Head Island from three of our hub cities and the introduction of New York’s only nonstop service to Anchorage and Pensacola, are just some of the ways we are responding to customers interest and demands.” Ankit Gupta also stated, “With more than 40 new domestic routes added this year, we remain committed to expanding our network to offer customers even more choices in their travel destinations.”
United’s enhanced East Coast schedule will take effect immediately. The airline is maximizing its strengths of its East Coast hubs which are Newark/New York and Washington Dulles. With the new routes announced today the airline will continue to optimize its leisure destinations as well as its key business locations.
United is also focusing on shifting its shorter flights from Newark/New York and Dulles hubs to Elmira, New York; Lexington, Kentucky and Manchester, New Hampshire.
Beginning June 6, 2019 United Airlines will offer its customers more destinations within California offering nonstop service between San Francisco and Columbus, Ohio. Beginning on March 31, 2019, United will also offer service from Los Angeles to Eugene, Oregon; Madison, Wisconsin and Pasco/Tri-Cities, Washington beginning March 31, 2019. In additional to all the new routes beginning on April 6, 2019, United will begin nonstop weekend service between Chicago O’Hare and Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
