United Airlines has announced it will add a fifth flight to San Francisco out of LA/Ontario International Airport starting in December.
The announcement was made this morning. Tickets for the new flight, which begins Dec. 19, are already available on United.com. (Too bad this flight wasn’t announced yesterday when a glitch in the airline’s system allowed customers to purchase tickets as low as $0.)
Could this be the start of a turnaround at ONT?
Last week, my colleague Brian Sumers reported on Aeromexico’s decision to offer daily service to Guadalajara and low-cost carrier Volaris applying to serve ONT.
Later this month ONT, LA Tourism, and AeroMexico will co-hosting an event to promote AeroMexico’s service at the airport. The event is expected to bring together travel agents from the southern California region. AeroMexico and other Latin American carriers still use travel agents as a major source for booking flights.
