United Offers Nonstop Summer Service to Vail

United Flights are the Only Summer Air Service Offered from Denver and Chicago

CHICAGO, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — United Airlines will offer daily nonstop summertime service to Vail from its hub airports in Chicago and Denver, providing the only air summer service to Vail from these cities.

“Colorado is an ideal vacation destination in all seasons. We are pleased to expand our service in this growing market,” said Greg Taylor, senior vice president of Planning for United. “United and its Express carriers offer travelers a nationwide flight network with connections to points around the globe.”

United’s new mainline Vail/Denver service will be available from June 6 to Sept. 6, 2005. This service is in addition to the three daily Vail/Denver flights currently operated by United Express.

“Eagle County is a beautiful place in a beautiful state and it is no wonder there is a growing demand from tourists and business people for more access,” said U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar (CO). “I applaud United for filling this needed service.”

“I am pleased to hear that United will be expanding service to the Eagle County Airport. Adding flights during the summer season will give Western Slope residents more travel options and will help business development and the tourist industry up and down the I-70 corridor,” said U.S. Rep. Mark Udall (CO). His district includes Eagle County.
