INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — The number of nonstop flights out of Indianapolis International Airport continues to grow. United Airlines (Nasdaq: UAL) says it will begin a seasonal nonstop flight to Orlando beginning next month.
The route to Orlando will run from Dec. 18 through April 22. The airport says United also plans to resume its nonstop daily service from Indy to Fort Myers, Florida on Dec. 16.
“This is our 22nd nonstop flight announced this year out of Indy, so we’re on a roll in working with our airline partners to get Hoosier travelers to their favorite destinations, quickly, easily and at the best price,” Indianapolis Airport Authority Executive Director Mario Rodriguez said in a news release. “This flight in particular is exciting because United is increasing nonstop flights to meet traveler demand for warm, leisure destinations this winter.”
The new nonstop to Orlando is the fourth seasonal nonstop United has added in Indy this year. In May, the airline added routes to Charleston, South Carolina; Portland, Maine; and Hilton Head Island.
