Starting June 8, 2017, United Airlines will offer daily, non-stop service to Chicago O’Hare International Airport, adding to the summer travel options between Reno and the Windy City.This marks the first time in recent RTAA history that United Airlines is offering non-stop service between Reno and Chicago, a market also served locally by American and Southwest Airlines. The route is seasonal to accommodate the busy summer traffic and is set to sunset September 5. “The airport heard from the community that they wanted more access to Chicago,” said Marily Mora, President and CEO of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority in a press release. “This route is key for both business and leisure, and also offers dozens of connections to the east coast and approximately 50 international destinations, so we are pleased United is filling the need. Now it is up to the community to fill the seats to keep this vital service.” The United flight will operate non-stop daily, seven days a week on a Boeing 737 with 143 seats. It will depart Chicago at 7:35 p.m., arriving in Reno at 9:45 p.m. The Reno outbound flights will depart here locally at 11:20 p.m., arriving in Chicago at 5 a.m. Tickets are on sale now.
