Chicago Fourth Flight Option Returns to Duluth International Airport

Duluth, MN, – Starting June 4, United Airlines will bring back a fourth daily, nonstop flight from the Duluth International Airport (DLH) to the Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD). The Duluth-Chicago route has experienced continued growth since its launch in December 2009. It has proven to be a popular, highdemand option for Northland leisure and business travelers alike.

Scheduled flights will include one early morning, two mid-day and one evening option departing from DLH to ORD. Flight time from Duluth to Chicago is less than 90 minutes.

With four daily flight options, business travelers have the ability to travel between Duluth and Chicago without missing a work day. In addition, once travelers land in Chicago, they have access to daily domestic flights offered by United and United Express, as well as daily International flights that include cities in Asia, Europe, South America and the Caribbean.

If the community demonstrates a demand to fulfill the need for the fourth flight, it enhances the Duluth Airports’ ability to sustain the fourth flight and increase future flights options. “Passenger demand drives the airline’s decision to add capacity. If demand remains strong, we’ll continue to see similar opportunities in the future,” said Tom Werner, Executive Director of the Duluth Airport Authority.
