Select Flights Will Feature United Airlines’ Mainline Aircraft With Two-Cabin Service

Madison, WI – The Dane County Regional Airport is pleased to announce that United Airlines will be increasing capacity on its existing service from Madison.  A strong passenger demand continues to drive flight service additions.

Beginning March 5, select United flights to and from Chicago will operate using Airbus A319/320 or Bombardier CRJ-700 aircraft, with two-cabin seating in United First and United Economy, including United Economy Plus extra-legroom seats. These aircraft replace some 50-seat, single-cabin regional jets previously operated on the route.

“We are extremely pleased that United will use these larger aircraft for our customers traveling to and from Dane County,” said Dane County Executive Joe Parisi.  “Having an airline that continues to increase service, helps to make Dane County a world-class destination to live, work and play."

South central Wisconsin travelers on these flights will enjoy wider seats, wider aisles, bigger overhead bins, onboard Wi-Fi, and convenient one-stop service to more than 300 destinations worldwide.

“With more flights available on larger, dual-cabin aircraft, our customers can enjoy upgraded service and in-flight amenities,” said Airport Director Bradley Livingston, AAE.

The Dane County Regional Airport provides seamless, low-stress, and affordable options for both leisure and business travelers with more than 90 daily arrivals and departures.  Nonstop service to 12 cities provides access to hundreds of worldwide destinations.
