Today inaugurates United Airlines' third daily flight between Duluth International Airport and Chicago O'Hare.
Since service started in December 2009, over one hundred thousand people have enjoyed the benefits of this convenient route. The additional third flight is scheduled to depart between 10 and 11am, which is positioned well between the early morning departure and the late afternoon flight.
"The addition of the third flight by United is a direct result of our Region embracing the service and the connections to the hundreds of domestic and international destinations which the Chicago O'Hare hub provides" stated Brian Ryks, Executive Director of the Duluth Airport Authority. "As United continues to grow its' ridership, additional opportunities may arise. "
Delta Airlines is also adding frequencies between Duluth and Minneapolis increasing the total number of roundtrips between the two cities from 7 to 9 each day. On certain high volume days, Delta will be operating larger dual-glass aircraft to Minneapolis and Detroit, such as the CRJ-900, with 76 seats (12 first class and 64 coach).
"We're couldn't be happier with these positive changes as it provides more options for passengers during our peak travel season."
