The ribbon for United’s new service to Oklahoma City from San Francisco was cut by John Aynes, Managing Director United Express Operations, and Mark Kranenburg, Oklahoma City Airports Director, who were helped by the United crew. After speeches by both executives, passengers boarded the inaugural flight on United’s fifth route from Oklahoma City.
- United Airlines launched a new route under its United Express brand on 29 August when it began operating between San Francisco, CA (SFO) and Oklahoma City, OK (OKC) – the airport analysed this week. This is United’s fifh route to the Oklahoma airport after Denver, Chicago O’Hare, Washington Dulles and Los Angeles. The new services are operated daily with SkyWest’s 66-seat CRJ700s. The last time San Francisco and Oklahoma City were connected with a non-stop air service was in 1982-1983, when both United and Air North American served the route.
