Nonstop flights to Chicago, New York take off

United Airlines last week launched its inaugural nonstop flights to Newark Liberty International Airport and Chicago O’Hare International Airport from Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport.

Airline and airport officials welcomed United Airlines to Chattanooga with a ribbon cutting celebration alongside the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke, and other elected officials.

“We’re very appreciative that United has recognized Chattanooga and the region as an opportunity for expansion,” said Terry Hart, Chattanooga Airport President and CEO. “New York City has been the most in demand by our business travelers and our top priority.”

Departing daily from Chattanooga, United Airlines will offer two flights to both cities on 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 regional jets. In addition, through United Airlines’ Star Alliance network, travelers will be given access to transcontinental service through United Airlines hubs at Newark Liberty International Airport and Chicago O’Hare International.

Same-day early morning departures and evening arrivals are available for both New York and Chicago.
