United Airlines said Monday that it would expand service from Omaha to the New York area.
The airline, which currently operates two nonstop flights to and from Newark Liberty International Airport, will begin flying three daily nonstop flights. Newark, New Jersey, is just outside New York City.
The flights will operate year-round and will begin March 31; they are available for booking as of Monday, a United spokesman said.
The Omaha-to-Newark flights will be flown on two-class large regional jets.
Along with the Omaha expansion, the airline also announced on Monday expanded nonstop service from Newark to Richmond, Virginia; Kansas City, Missouri; St. Louis; and Detroit, calling those markets “key business destinations.”
