United Airlines connects to Columbia in Missouri

United Airlines Columbia

The first United Airlines passenger to disembark the aircraft in Columbia had the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially open the airline’s new services from Chicago O’Hare (twice-daily) and Denver (daily) on 1 August. United Airlines, which will operate both routes on CRJ 200s, becomes the second carrier to serve the Missouri airport, with American Airlines already linking it to Chicago O’Hare and Dallas/Fort Worth.

  • United Airlines has become the second airline to serve Columbia (COU) in Missouri, with the Star Alliance member on 1 August beginning a twice-daily service from Chicago O’Hare (ORD) and a daily link from Denver (DEN). The 1,075-kilometre link to Denver will not face any direct competition. However, the 505-kilometre link from O’Hare is already served by American Airlines (13 times weekly), with the oneworld member also serving Columbia from Dallas/Fort Worth. The oneworld member started serving the airport in 2013. Both of United’s new routes will be flown by the carrier’s 50-seat CRJ 200s.
