United launches three each domestic and international services

Kelowna Airport’s air service development team posed with Martin Kammerman, United’s Senior Manager Market Analysis Network Planning for a commemorative picture celebrating the airline’s new route to Los Angeles.

United launches three each domestic and international services

United’s maiden arrival in San Salvador was greeted with the traditional water cannon salute. Alberto Arene, President of CEPA (the airport’s operator), said: “This new service reflects the existing passenger demand for international services. The opening up of the country will greatly facilitate the launch of various tourism campaigns that would historically prove too isolated to be successful.”

  • United inaugurated a number of international services in the run-up to Christmas, including daily flights from Washington Dulles, VA (IAD) to San Salvador (SAL), on which route it now competes against Taca’s 17 weekly frequencies. Furthermore, in the first week of January, the airline launched three high-frequency domestic routes, all of which are operated within the United Express brand.
