Lincoln Airport Authority officials today announced that effective
February 12, 2004, United Express will add an additional regional jet
departure to both its Denver and Chicago hubs from the Lincoln Airport.
“This latest increase in service follows an announcement in December by
Northwest Airlines of their plans to upgrade its last remaining turbo-prop
flight to Minneapolis to another regional jet flight, making the Lincoln
Airport an all jet Airport.” said John Wood, executive director of the
Lincoln Airport Authority. “These two new Regional Jet flights will bring
mores seats and more choices for the residents of Lincoln and central
Nebraska. We will continue to promote United Express` presence in the
Lincoln market to ensure their continued growth in Lincoln.” With these
additional flights, United Express will now provide 11 daily CRJ jet
departures from Lincoln and over 1100 total combined inbound and outbound
seats per day.
With the upgraded service on February 12th, United Express will offer six
daily CRJ round-trip flights between Lincoln and Chicago`s O`Hare
International Airport and five daily CRJ round-trip flights between
Lincoln and Denver International Airport.
