Beginning December 20, United will increase service from its hubs in Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco to Hawaii. The airline will continue operating its daily nonstop service to Honolulu from all seven domestic hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., plus Guam and Tokyo.

"As we celebrate our 70th anniversary in Hawaii this year, today's announcement carries a very special significance for our customers," said Jake Cefolia, United's vice president of Sales.

The Hawaiian Islands are an important part of United's history. With the maiden departure of a United DC-6 Mainliner from San Francisco to Honolulu in May 1947, United played a major role in helping to make Hawaii an easily accessible destination for tourism and business. In fact, United's West Coast hubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco will remain the country's largest gateways for connecting customers to Hawaii, and in December, United's Denver hub will be another primary interior gateway to Hawaii, offering customers the ability to get to Hawaii from more than 90 destinations in the U.S. and Canada.
