United adding nonstops from New Orleans to San Francisco
NEW ORLEANS - United Airlines is expanding its seasonal nonstop flights from New Orleans to San Francisco to a daily, year-round service starting in early June.
United Airlines previously did not offer nonstop flights between New Orleans and San Francisco in the summer months. The company, in a news release, said beginning June 8, the connection will be available year-round.
The flight is among dozens of new or expanded daily round-trips United plans to add to its domestic schedule this summer.
NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports United Airlines was the fourth largest carrier at Louis Armstrong International Airport last year. About 14 percent of domestic travelers flying into and out of New Orleans were on United flights.
