— Official News Release, City of Minot —
United Airlines has added a third daily round trip flight between Minot International Airport and Denver International Airport, boosting the number of daily seats available by 50 percent.
The new flight will begin June 6, but is already available for reservations. When the additional flight begins, United Airlines’ daily schedule will have three departures and arrivals:
- Approximate Minot departures: 6:15 a.m., 3:15 p.m., 8:10 p.m.
- Approximate Minot arrivals: 1 p.m., 6:45 p.m., 11 p.m.
“We’ve been working with United and other airlines to showcase Minot and encourage additional service,” said Rick Feltner, Minot International Airport Director. “I think this shows United has a high level of confidence in our community’s ability to support the additional service. Hopefully, advance bookings will be strong so United makes this a permanent addition to Minot’s daily schedule.”
The current 50-seat ERJ-145 aircraft will continue to be used, boosting the daily available seats from 100 to 150. Feltner said airlines invest much research before making changes to their daily flight schedules.
“They don’t make these decisions lightly,” he said. “But this truly benefits our community because from Denver, you can get just about anywhere in the United States and there are many international destinations available, too. This really opens up a lot of options for passengers flying out of Minot.”
