United Airlines is ramping up its winter services to America’s top ski destinations, with direct flights this winter to 11 different winter sports hubs including Jackson Hole, Vail and Big Sky.

United’s Managing Director of Domestic Network Planning, Mark Weithofer, said as the largest carrier to ski destinations in the United States, United currently serves 11 ski stations with service from all its hubs across the country, “making it easy for travelers to connect to their favorite mountains and slopes”.

He said this winter, the company plans to expand its East Coast service to include more nonstop flights from Newark/New York to Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Eagle/Vail, Colorado; Hayden/Steamboat, Colorado; Montrose/Telluride, Colorado; and Bozeman/Big Sky, Montana in addition to more flights to Steamboat and Montrose/Telluride.

Meanwhile, for the sun seekers, United has also announced it will offer more flights to Florida this winter than it has in the airline’s history – growing its schedule by nearly 20% compared to last winter with more flights to popular sun destinations including Miami, Tampa and Orlando and by flying larger planes with more seats.
