WHAT: The new CHO-ORD service will be provided by United Airlines with a 50 seat regional jet.

WHEN: June 8, 2017


  • Chicago is CHO’s top market and provides some of the most direct connections to western markets.
  • The new United Airlines service will offer an estimated 2800 additional monthly seats to and from ORD, one of United Airlines key hubs for both domestic and international travel.
  • United Airlines is a member of Star Alliance, along with 26 airlines flying to more than 1,250 airport destinations in 193 countries.

“United Airlines recent decision to provide additional service from Charlottesville to a major hub like Chicago O’Hare is excellent news for Charlottesville and the surrounding counties.
