Today, we announced we will begin new service between six of our domestic hubs and eight destinations in California, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, Virginia and Wisconsin. The new flights offer customers hundreds of connection opportunities across our world-class domestic and international route network.

"We are excited to begin the new year by adding eight new flights as we continue our focus on making United the first choice for customers," said Jake Cefolia, United's vice president of Sales.

In addition to the new year round services, we announced we will offer the only nonstop flight between New York and Rapid City, South Dakota. Beginning June 23, we will start summer and Saturday-only service between New York/Newark and Rapid City, making it easier for customers to access popular outdoor destinations including Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Badlands National Park and Wind Cave National Park.

In February, we will also begin operating our newly enhanced bank structure at O'Hare International Airport to shorten connection times and provide better access to more destinations for our customers connecting through Chicago. This operations enhancement, already in place in Houston, will enable us to greatly improve connectivity throughout our leading global route network.
