By Ryan Hood, June 20, 2019

Here's a win, college football fans: United is adding nine special nonstop routes for big college football games this season, in addition to adding around 10,000 seats between its hubs and popular game destinations.

"Our playbook this year will make it easier than ever for fans, alumni and students to cheer on their teams in other college towns across the country," said Ankit Gupta, United's vice president of Domestic Network Planning. "It's exciting for football fans and even more exciting for United to be able to operate nonstop flights between these communities for the very first time."

Touching down in a college town has never been easier, thanks to these nonstop routes.

On November 27, United Airlines became the first commercial airline to safely deliver the first batch of Pfizer and BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine into the U.S. thanks to a coordinated effort between United's cargo, safety, technical operations, flight operations, regulatory and legal teams.

Now as the entire shipping and logistics industry bands together to widely distribute vaccines, United is leveraging all of its flights, including cargo-only and those carrying passengers, to transport millions of vaccines to destinations throughout our network, including Honolulu, Guam and Saipan – the first of any carrier to do so.
