There are no sexy resort destinations here, but these year-round routes will give new options for domestic travelers.
You won’t find Honolulu or Miami on the list, but United’s seven new year-round nonstop routes from five hub airports will put a lot of travelers in the air—and open up a slew of international connections—when flights commence on June 7.
✈ Chicago (ORD) to Bismarck, North Dakota (BIS)—two flights daily
✈ Denver (DEN) to Appleton, Wisconsin (ATW)
✈ Denver (DEN) to Norfolk, Virginia (ORF)
✈ Houston (IAH) to Akron/Canton, Ohio (CAK)
✈ Houston (IAH) to Dayton, Ohio (DAY)
✈ Los Angeles (LAX) to Eureka, California (ACV)
✈ San Francisco (SFO) to Madison, Wisconsin (MSN)
In addition to its new year-round flights, the airline also announced a new summertime nonstop—Newark (EWR) to Rapid City, South Dakota (RAP)— that will make visiting Mount Rushmore and the Badlands a whole lot easier for East Coast types with it launches on June 23.
If all this just isn’t exotic enough for you, remember that United inaugurated fully 13 new international routes during 2017, including nonstop flights from U.S. hubs to Reykjavík, Buenos Aires, Zurich, and Tahiti—along with an 18-hour record-setter from Los Angeles to Singapore.
