Starting This Fall Duluth Will Get Another Daily Flight to Chicago
It seems that demand for flights to and from the Duluth International Airport is good enough for one airline to take notice and will be adding an additional flight this fall.
To make this point, the Duluth Airport Authority pointed out in a press release that in a study conducted by the Regional Airline Association, between 2019 and 2022 more than 106 communities reported that they had lost more than 25% of their airline service, meanwhile, DLH continues to add flight options for travelers.
United Airlines announced that starting September 6th, they will be adding a third daily flight to Chicago's O’Hare Airport, the new flight will be added in the afternoon to "maximize the best times for flight connections at ORD."
Tom Werner, Executive Director at DLH says, "Demand is strong in this region and flights are operating with very strong passenger loads. We are working with our airline partners to advocate for more flight capacity, and this is (a) step in the right direction.”
Currently Delta, United and operate daily flights out of Duluth, Sun Country offers seasonal destinations to places like Pheonix and Fort Meyers, and they will again this year starting on December 16th, 2022, and continuing through April 17th, 2023. Tickets for these flights are already on sale.
Sun Country is also trying to entice Duluth travelers with a limited offer that will include free Landline bus transportation from DLH to MSP to catch one of the many year-round Sun Country flights flying from MSP.
