United Airlines announced 22 new additions to its route network on Monday, including new service between South Carolina’s Hilton Head Island and Chicago, Newark, and Washington, D.C.
That service, which will be seasonal and will start on Apr. 6, 2019, will make United the number one provider of flights in and out of Hilton Head.
"The expansion to Hilton Head Island from three of our hub cities and the introduction of New York's only nonstop service to Anchorage and Pensacola, are just some of the ways we are responding to customer interest and demand,” Vice President of Domestic Network Planning Ankit Gupta said in a statement announcing the news.
The Hilton Heads flights are currently on sale.
In addition to the Hilton Head service out of Newark, United will also add flights to Pensacola, Florida and Anchorage, Alaska from the New Jersey hub. Both of those will be seasonal.
There are also new nonstop flights between San Francisco and Columbus, Ohio. In addition, three new routes will fly out of Los Angeles: LAX to Eugen, Oregon; Madison, Wisconsin; and Pasco/Tri-Cities, Washington. That service kicks off on Mar. 31, 2019.
"There's no substitute for a great network; serving destinations with convenient flight times that our customers want. This is something we continue to expand on in California," said Janet Lamkin, United's president of California.
