Will Rogers airport, United Airlines celebrate inaugural flight to San Francisco
Oklahoma City’s Will Rogers World Airport will host a ceremony for the inaugural departure of United Airlines new nonstop service to San Francisco, California at 6:30 a.m., Tuesday, August 30, at United’s Gate 5.
Passengers boarding United Airlines’ Flight 6241 will be surrounded with iconic images of the City by the Bay, served San Francisco coffee and Ghirardelli chocolates, and receive a souvenir gift.
San Francisco is one of Oklahoma City’s most popular destinations with over 75,000 passengers traveling to and from the area annually. Until today, it was Oklahoma City’s second largest city-market without nonstop service.
The new flight will bring the number of major airports served from Oklahoma City to twenty. The daily schedule is timed to work for business travelers who want to conduct business in one day and for those connecting to Asia and Hawaii. Leisure travelers also benefit with more connecting choices to cities along the west coast.
