United Airlines announced that it is added daily nonstop service during the summer between Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport and San Francisco.

The service will run from June 4 to Sept. 7. Flights will depart Milwaukee at 7 a.m. and arrive in San Francisco at 9:37 a.m. Flights from San Francisco will depart at 10:51 p.m. and arrive in Milwaukee at 5:08 a.m. United will use Airbus A319 aircraft for the flights.

Tickets for the service went on sale on Saturday.

“San Francisco is an important business and leisure market from Milwaukee and we are thrilled that United is beginning new service this June,” said Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive. “We look forward to all of the exciting things happening in Milwaukee in 2020, and one of those is connecting Milwaukee with the Bay Area.”

“This new service will provide yet another nonstop destination for our customers in San Francisco and will also provide the opportunity for Milwaukee customers to more easily access the Bay Area and provide convenient one-stop access to all the many other markets we serve from San Francisco,” said Janet Lamkin, United’s president of California.

Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport currently offers nonstop flights to 37 destinations coast-to-coast

“This is a great example of how airlines respond to passenger demand and why it’s important that we all choose to fly from our hometown airport every time we travel,” Airport director Brian Dranzik said. “With these additional flights from United, we are pleased that we now have an additional nonstop option to the West Coast.”
