This Airline is Offering a Record Number of Flights to Florida This Winter

Florida bound for the winter season? United Airlines is now offering more flights than ever in its history this winter. The airline is adding 20% more flights to popular Sunshine State destinations like Miami, Tampa and Orlando. They’ll also be flying larger planes with more seats.

Demand for travel to Florida is up significantly from last year, as United.com data shows that Miami and Orlando are two of the top five most-searched domestic travel destinations this winter. With more flights and more seats, United customers will have more options to get there, whether with a budget-friendly Basic Economy or upgraded to United First.

One of United’s newest planes, the Airbus 321neo, will fly on select routes to Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Fort Myers beginning in December. The airline will also nearly double the number of seats between Key West International Airport and several United Hub airports, including Chicago O’Hare, Washington Dulles, Houston and Newark/New York.

“We know that November is when most people start their winter travel planning so we’re adding these flights to give customers more options than ever,” said Mark Weithofer, United’s Managing Director of Domestic Network Planning. “We’ve already begun to see record-breaking demand for winter travel and whether customers are looking to unwind on the beach or hit the slopes, United is the clear choice for those planning their getaways.”

For travelers looking to embrace rather than escape the winter snow, United remains the U.S.’s largest carrier to popular ski destinations, with direct flights to 11 different winter hubs, including Jackson Hole, Vail and Big Sky.
