Monterey Regional Airport is to see a new, twice daily nonstop service between the airport and Denver International Airport from 4 October with United Airlines.
United’s new service from Monterey will connect California’s Central Coast with the airline’s Denver hub and complements United’s existing flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco.
“I’d like to thank United Airlines for their commitment to the Central Coast market as demonstrated by today’s exciting announcement” said Carl Miller, chairman of Monterey Peninsula Airport District.
Miller added that the new service from United “is a great indication of their confidence in our region and our community.”
The Denver flights offer customers almost 100 connection opportunities throughout the US Midwest and East Coast.
The executive director of Monterey Regional Airport, Michael La Pier thanked the Board of Directors of the Monterey Peninsular Airport District for their “tireless effort” to make the airport a “key and vital contributor to the economic vibrance of the Central Coast region.”
He continued: “They recognise the importance convenient and reliable air service plays in the continued success of our major employers in both the hospitality and agriculture industries and are committed to constant improvement in the airport and the services we offer.”
La Pier also thanked businesses that contributed financial support and time: “Attracting new air service of this importance is a difficult proposition and requires a committed community effort. The entire community should be proud and, hopefully, very excited today.”
Flights are now available for purchase, and with the new service, passengers from Monterey Regional Airport can connect directly with five of the West Coast’s busiest airports.
Janet Lamkin, United’s president of California said: “We are pleased to respond to the needs of our customers by expanding our presence in Monterey and offering our customers more service and more opportunities to connect to United’s domestic and international route network.”
