“United’s new service will add more options for travelers from across the region and continue to define Bismarck Airport as the premier airport and hub city for central and western of North Dakota,” said Bismarck Mayor Mike Seminary.
“Bismarck-Mandan is a regional economy serving business and leisure travelers from western North Dakota, northern South Dakota, eastern Montana and beyond,” said Brian Ritter, President of the Bismarck Mandan Development Association (BMDA) and Bismarck-Mandan Chamber of Commerce. “This new service to Chicago will only enhance our community’s reputation as a destination for those travelers.”
“We are excited to offer our customers traveling between Bismarck and Chicago another convenient travel option to our Midwest hub,” said Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of Domestic Network Planning. “United’s new service will add an additional 126 new domestic and international connections to the central and eastern United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe.”
The combination of the early morning and midday departures will provide passengers with the benefit of multiple daily flights options and the ability to connect with a number of domestic departure banks at Chicago O’Hare. International travelers will benefit from the new service too. In addition to Chicago O’Hare’s strong domestic connectivity, this new service will create 27 new connections to international destinations on United for Bismarck travelers.
The new service to Chicago O’Hare will be flown twice a day with an ERJ-145, a comfortable 50 seat regional jet. United also offers daily service between Bismarck and Denver. For more information or to book a flight on United Airlines customers are encouraged to visit www.united.com.
