United Express to Offer New Nonstop Service

On April 3, 2005, United Express
introduces daily nonstop service between San Antonio, Texas, and United’s
hub airports in San Francisco and Los Angeles. The new service includes a
daily roundtrip flight between San Francisco and San Antonio, providing
the only non-stop service between these two cities. Also, United Express
will operate a daily flight between Los Angeles and San Antonio,
increasing service options for customers flying this route. Both flights
now are open for sale. “Our new United Express service increases options for customers traveling
from San Antonio to the West Coast, and both flights provide key access to
all of our west coast, Hawaii and Asia-Pacific destinations,” says Sean
Donohue, vice president of Ted and United Express. “We currently offer our
customers flights from San Antonio to Chicago O’Hare and Denver, and we
are pleased to expand service between this popular destination city and
our West Coast hubs.”

United Express carrier SkyWest Airlines will operate the new service with
two-class regional jets with six First Class seats, and 28 Economy Plus(R)
seats and 32 Economy seats. United is the first airline to introduce First
Class and the extra legroom of Economy Plus seating together with our
United Express regional jet fleet.

In addition to launching the new San Antonio routes, United has increased
the number of seats available on its San Francisco-Austin, Texas, route to
meet customer demand—now operating the flight with a 120-seat Airbus
A319 instead of a regional jet.
