CHICAGO, Jan. 28, 2003 - United Airlines (NYSE: UAL) announced today it will launch new nonstop scheduled service between its Denver hub and Charlotte on Sunday, April 6, 2003.
United said it will operate two daily round-trip flights in the market using Boeing 737 aircraft.
“This is great news for travelers in Denver and in Charlotte, because these flights will provide more convenient schedule options to customers in both cities,” said Gregory T. Taylor, senior vice president-planning. “With United’s broad schedule offering at Denver and our code-share partner US Airways’ presence at Charlotte, we will now be able to offer connections to 48 markets beyond Denver and to 97 markets beyond Charlotte.”
United and US Airways launched a marketing partnership earlier this year. It allows the customer to book a single itinerary and check in only once for a journey that uses both airlines. Schedules are coordinated closely to allow smooth connections through hub airports.
United operates more than 1,700 flights daily on a route system that spans the globe. News releases and other information about United Airlines can be found at the company’s website, www.united.com.
