    MILWAUKEE (March 25, 2021) – As more travelers take to the skies this summer, United Airlines is adding new nonstop service from Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) to five popular leisure destinations on the south and east coasts of the U.S.

    Beginning May 28, United will fly nonstop from MKE to Charleston, SC; Myrtle Beach, SC; Pensacola, FL; Portland, ME; and Savannah, GA. All five destinations have never had nonstop service from Wisconsin before.

    "These new nonstop destinations give our travelers exciting new choices for their upcoming summer vacations, including Wisconsin’s first-ever nonstop flights to the state of Maine and South Carolina,” Airport Director Brian Dranzik said. “The new flights also provide great opportunities for travelers in those locations to fly nonstop to Milwaukee and enjoy Wisconsin’s world-class golf courses, breweries, museums, sports, and outdoor recreation.”

    The new flights to each of the destinations will generally be offered twice per week for the entire summer, from May 28 through Labor Day weekend.

    "Throughout the pandemic, United has been strategic and thoughtful in adding flights to destinations that our customers want to visit," said Ankit Gupta, vice president of domestic network planning and scheduling at United Airlines. "With many customers now beginning to plan summer vacations in places where they can enjoy time outside, we look forward to offering new service to these destinations. United will have the most flights to Portland, Maine of any carrier."

    Tickets are available for purchase now at united.com or on the United Airlines mobile app.
