United Airlines to start flying into Columbia Regional Airport website says

United Airlines is launching seasonal non-stop service between Bradley International Airport and San Francisco.

United Airlines is the world's largest airline in terms of cities served, with flights to 360 cities on five continents, the company said.

The flights are scheduled to arrive into Sonoma County Airport (STS) at 1:30 p.m., 4:40 p.m., and 11:15 p.m. and depart daily at 6 a.m., 2:05 p.m., and 5:20 p.m. from STS to SFO. Flights will be operated on their Bombardier CRJ-200 - a 50-seat jet aircraft. American Airlines debuted a daily nonstop flight to Phoenix-Sky Harbor International Airport on February 16, marking the first direct connections from Sonoma County to a major hub east of California.

United discontinued similar service to San Francisco from Sonoma County in 2001.

Springfield television station KY3 reports that United will also provide twice-daily flights from Springfield to Houston starting in June.

Added, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, "Direct service to San Francisco will bring more business and innovation, increase tourism opportunity, and is another indicator that Bradley is a global competitor in the travel sector".

United will be the fourth major carrier offering service out of Sonoma County.

As a hub for United Airlines, Newark offers connecting flights on United's vast network of global flights.
