United Airlines announced Monday it plans to add another flight this summer to its nonstop service between Bozeman and the New York City area.
The new flight will run Wednesdays from July 2 until Aug. 13, scheduled to depart Newark Liberty International Airport at 9:16 a.m. and arrive in Bozeman at noon. Returning flights are scheduled to leave Bozeman at 2:05 p.m. and arrive on the East Coast at 8:07 p.m., according to a news release from the local airport. Flights on Saturday and Sunday will continue from June 21 until Aug. 30.
The direct flights began in the summer of 2012 after the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport received a $950,000 Small Community Air Service Program grant. The community provided $688,000 from 17 area businesses. The money provided revenue guarantees for United.
Next summer, the airport will also have daily service to Atlanta.
