Ted, the new low-fare service from United, began its first service to
Southern California today, with flights between Ontario and Denver. Ted
offers Southern California travelers a new, affordable way to fly. Ted
will offer four daily roundtrips between Ontario and Denver.
In addition to Ontario, Ted offers service from Denver to Las Vegas, Reno,
New Orleans and Ft. Lauderdale; and between San Francisco and Las Vegas.
By the end of March, Ted also will offer service between Los Angeles (LAX)
and Las Vegas; from Denver to Tampa, Orlando and Phoenix; and between San
Francisco and Phoenix. Beginning April 7, Ted will offer service from
Washington-Dulles to Las Vegas, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando.
“This is an exciting day for Ted as we expand our service from Denver to
include Southern California, an important market for us,” said Sean
Donohue, vice president of Ted. “We are very pleased to have Ontario as
the launch city for Ted service to Southern California, to be complemented
by LAX service that will begin next month.”
“The introduction of Ted to Ontario airport will make air travel more
convenient for those flying in and out of Southern California,” said Mayor
Jim Hahn of Los Angeles. “I am committed to dispersing air traffic from
Los Angeles International Airport to our smaller, regional airports across
Southern California in order to improve service and the ease with which
the traveling public moves throughout the region. The arrival of Ted is an
important step toward that goal.”
“We are very proud to welcome Ted to L.A.-Ontario International Airport,”
said Kim Day, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) interim executive
director. “Ted’s arrival is an important milestone in Ontario’s continued
growth and gives travelers an exciting new air service option that
complements the relaxing and convenient on-the-ground travel experience
that Ontario offers.”
The relaxed and friendly Ted experience combines low fares with
outstanding service. In addition to more simplified, low fares, Ted offers
pre-assigned seats and exclusive onboard entertainment, dubbed
“Tedevision” and “Tedtunes.” Tedevision features a variety of programming
in keeping with Ted’s relaxed personality, including hit television shows
such as Friends, Scrubs, and My Wife and Kids; music videos from chart
toppers Jason Mraz, Coldplay and Liz Phair; and segments from Jay Leno,
Conan O’Brien and the Carson Daly show. Tedtunes features 15 channels of
music ranging from Latin, dance, club and easy listening to kids’ tunes.
Offering something for everyone, featured artists include Sarah McLachlan,
Seal, Martina McBride and Outkast.
In addition to complimentary beverage service, Ted’s favorite premium
beverages—Foster’s Lager and margaritas—and food items are available
for purchase on board. Ted customers on flights over two and a half hours
can enjoy food a-la-carte style from Bennigan’s On the Go, offering a
range of items including Salmon Caesar Salad, the County Cork Club
sandwich and Atkins Advantage bars for the carb conscious.
Ted also recently introduced TedClub, part of United’s award-winning
Mileage Plus program. TedClub members can earn and redeem miles in all the
same ways Mileage Plus members do, across all of United’s offerings—
