United Airlines has brought back a fourth daily, nonstop flight from Duluth International Airport (DLH) to Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD).
The fourth flight will operate through the end of October, during the peak summer and fall travel season. The United route to Chicago continues to grow market share in this region year after year since its launch in December 2009.
The fourth flight, along with the addition of the United Airbus A319/A320 that launched in May for the early flight out of DLH and last arriving flight, is a result of the demand by our Northland leisure and business travelers alike.
With the addition of this fourth flight, the daily schedule of flights departing from DLH to ORD will include one early morning, two mid-day and one evening option. With four daily flight options, business travelers have the ability to travel between Duluth and Chicago without missing a workday.
Once travelers land in Chicago, they have access to over 200 daily domestic flights offered by United and United Express, as well as over 100 international daily departures, including cities in Asia, Europe, South America and the Caribbean.
“United Airlines has proven to be a valuable option for commercial air travel in this region,” said Tom Werner, Executive Director of the Duluth Airport Authority. “We are happy to see demonstrated demand that allows for the fourth daily flight to return for this summer/fall season and the addition of the mainline Airbus. Travelers have also appreciated the additional customer service experience and amenities that have come with the addition of the mainline.”
