United Airlines announced Friday that it plans to add new routes and restore dozens more routes to its October schedule. The new and returning routes mean the Chicago-based airline will be flying 46% of last October’s domestic schedule, an 8% increase over September.
The airline is also restoring eight Hawaii routes, wagering that Hawaii will allow out-of-state visitors to return without quarantining for 14 days beginning Oct. 1. The Aloha State is already requiring both transpacific and inter-island travelers to submit a digital application with their health and contact information, and once it allows out-of-state visitors to return, officials plan to institute a “resort bubble” that will keep tabs on them but allow them to move between islands.
