United Airlines will be adding two daily flights from Bismarck to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, beginning in June.
United already flies between Bismarck and Denver.
"What it means for this business community is more options," said Bismarck-Mandan Chamber president and Bismarck-Mandan Development Association president Brian Ritter. "Not everyone flies the same. Any time there's more options, we all win."
Ritter said for a city of Bismarck’s size, it has very good air service. Five carriers – United, Delta, American, Allegiant and Frontier – serve the city.
