As the airline rebuilds its schedule to meet the increased travel demand, adding in seasonal point-to-point flying is just one of the ways United is finding opportunities to add new and exciting service.
“Throughout the pandemic, United has been strategic and thoughtful in adding flights to destinations that our customers want to visit,” said Ankit Gupta Vice President of Domestic Network Planning and Scheduling at United Airlines. “With many customers now beginning to plan summer vacations in places where they can enjoy time outside, we look forward to offering new service to key cities in the Midwest and Northeast.”
With this announcement, by June 2021, Pensacola International Airport will offer nonstop service to 28 destinations through eight airlines. United Airlines currently provides nonstop flights to Denver, Dulles, Houston and Chicago.
“Pensacola International Airport continues to be a strong economic driver for the City of Pensacola and the entire region, and I expect that success to continue to build as we move forward,” Mayor Grover Robinson said. “I’m excited to see these new nonstop flights from United Airlines, providing additional opportunities for travelers to connect with our beautiful city.”
