United to Begin Nonstop Service to LAX

December 19, 2012

Beginning May 2, travelers from Wichita Mid-Continent Airport will be able to enjoy daily, nonstop United Airlines’ service to Los Angeles International Airport, Wichita’s fourth top passenger market.  United operates approximately 200 peak-day departures from LAX, including service to many destinations throughout the west, Hawaii and Asia.  Connections to points beyond LAX are also available on United’s Star Alliance partner airlines.

The new flights will be operated by SkyWest, using a 66-seat CRJ-700 aircraft with six first-class seats, 28 Economy Plus seats, and 32 economy seats.  The schedule will be convenient for business travelers who will be able to catch the morning departure, conduct business and return the same evening.

The daily schedule is as follows:

  • Departs ICT @ 6:20 am
  • Arrives LAX @ 7:36 am
  • Departs LAX @ 6:25 pm
  • Arrives ICT @ 11:20 pm

Nonstop service to LAX also makes it convenient for leisure travelers to visit Southern California and its many vacation destinations, resorts and beaches. “We wish to thank United Airlines for recognizing the demand for service to the LAX market and bringing their valuable resources to ICT.  This will be a popular service for the business travelers in our region,” said Valerie Wise, Air Service & Business Development Manager.

“United looks forward to serving the growing business market between Wichita and Southern California,” said Martin Kammerman, United’s senior manager of market analysis. “This new market will increase travel options for Wichita passengers beyond our existing service to Chicago, Denver and Houston.”
