By BA Staff

United Airlines plans to announce a new nonstop service from its Chicago Hub at O’Hare International Airport to Elmira, N.Y., and State College, Pa using its United Express regional brand. The airline also plans to begin new service from Chicago to Topeka, Kan., subject to government approval. Terminal 1 houses the United Airlines hub and departures for some of its Star Alliance partners. United’s hub at O’Hare is its second largest, and serving over 150 destinations with 570 flights per day in conjunction with United Express

Elmira and Topeka are both new destinations in United’s route network. United currently serves State College from its hub at Washington-Dulles. 

Karen Catlin, United’s managing director for Midwest and Canada sales, had this to say about the new route:

“By adding these new routes, United continues to strengthen Chicago’s best route network, travelers from Elmira, State College and Topeka will have improved access to the nation’s third largest city and one-stop access to more of the world from United’s Chicago hub.”
