United Airlines to Offer Direct Flights To Chicago 

The nonstop service from Redmond will only run in the summer

Starting next June people in Central Oregon can fly directly to the Windy City.

According to a press release from the Redmond Municipal Airport, United Airlines will offer direct flights to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport starting on June 6, 2019. SkyWest Inc. will operate the daily non-stop flights using the Embraer 175 series aircraft, which can seat up to 76 passengers—12 first-class recliner seats, 16 seats in the premium economy-lite section and 48 seats in coach, the release said.

The non-stop flights to Redmond will only operate in the summer according to a United Airlines press release. They’re scheduled to depart from Redmond at 11:45pm, arriving in Chicago at 5:15am the following day. Flights to Redmond are scheduled to leave Chicago at 7:30pm and arrive in Redmond at 9:45pm.
