CLEVELAND -- United Airlines has announced new daily nonstop flights from its hub at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport to Nashville and Oklahoma City.
United says the Nashville flights will begin on Dec. 19, while the Oklahoma City service will begin Feb. 14 of next year.
The flights will be operated by Express Jet using 50-seat regional jet aircraft. Tickets for these new flights will be available starting Sept. 22.
"Nashville has the largest number of travelers among cities that United doesn't currently serve from Cleveland, and the Oklahoma City flights will support Northeast Ohio's growing energy sector," Jim Ferea, United's managing director domestic planning.
United also announced they are discontinuing nonstop service between Cleveland and Green Bay, Wis. Starting Dec. 18. United says Cleveland fliers can get to Green Bay through their connecting service in Chicago.
