New winter routes: Surf or slopes?

By The Hub team, December 20, 2017

Planning the perfect winter escape just got easier. Beginning today, we are offering customers more than 100 additional ways to hit the ski slopes or catch some waves.

"Regardless of which hub our customers fly from, world-class skiing or fun in the sun is just a flight away," said Jake Cefolia, United's vice president of Sales. "Whether our customers are looking for a ski or sun getaway, United offers unmatched access to the country's top ski resorts and the beautiful islands of Hawaii."

We are increasing service to multiple popular ski destinations across the United States – in fact, United flies to more ski destinations than any other U.S. carrier. We have added three new routes this winter from San Francisco to Vail, Colorado and Chicago to Reno, Nevada, as well as to Sun Valley, Idaho. We are also adding more flights to existing routes from our airport hubs to popular ski cities. The full list of these cities include:

  • Aspen, Colorado
  • Vail, Colorado
  • Crested Butte, Colorado
  • Steamboat Springs, Colorado
  • Jackson Hole, Wyoming
  • Sun Valley, Idaho
  • Bozeman, Montana

In addition to these fun winter destinations, we are strengthening our gateways to Hawaii from our airport hubs in Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco by adding more flights.

From Chicago, we offer the only nonstop service to Hawaii and are now increasing our service to Maui to five times weekly, while continuing daily, year-round nonstop service to Honolulu.

Denver has become one of our Hawaiian gateway cities and is now connecting more than 90 U.S. cities to Honolulu, Kona, Lihue and Maui. In addition to offering customers more opportunities to connect, we are increasing our routes from seasonal to daily, nonstop service to Kona, Lihue and Maui - while continuing to operate year-round daily service to Honolulu.

From Los Angeles we are increasing service between Los Angeles and all of our Hawaii destinations – Hilo, Honolulu, Kona, Maui and Lihue. Making us the only U.S. airline with nonstop service from Los Angeles to Hilo, on the Island of Hawaii.

In addition to its five-times-daily service between San Francisco and Honolulu in February, we are increasing service to Kona, Lihue and Maui.

United, Honeywell Invest in New Clean Tech Venture from Alder Fuels, Powering Biggest Sustainable Fuel Agreement in Aviation History

United agrees to purchase 1.5 billion gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) over 20 years - which is one and a half times the size of the rest of the world's airlines' publicly announced SAF commitments combined
By United Newsroom, September 09, 2021

CHICAGO and DES PLAINES, Ill., Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- United and Honeywell today announced a joint multimillion-dollar investment in Alder Fuels – a cleantech company that is pioneering first-of-its-kind technologies for producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale by converting abundant biomass, such as forest and crop waste, into sustainable low-carbon, drop-in replacement crude oil that can be used to produce aviation fuel. When used together across the fuel lifecycle, the Alder technologies, coupled with Honeywell's Ecofining™ process, could have the ability to produce a carbon-negative fuel at spec with today's jet fuel. The goal of the technologies is to produce fuel that is a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum jet fuel.
