addition to providing direct service to Cleveland, the new route will
give Oklahoma City air travelers options in connecting to destinations
on the East Coast. In recent years, the carrier has added nonstop
service from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles, Newark, N.J., Washington,
D.C., and San Francisco.
“Will Rogers World Airport is
now one of only a few cities in the country that will be served by all
eight of United’s domestic hubs,” says Mark Kranenburg, director of
airports. “We appreciate United’s commitment to the market.”
United Express flights will be operated by ExpressJet using 50-seat
regional jet aircraft. The proposed schedule calls for daily departures
from Oklahoma City at 10:57 a.m., and arrival in Cleveland at 2:20 p.m.
