The nonstop flight will be offered daily, departing DAY at 9 a.m., a spokesperson for the Dayton International Airport said.

The E175 plane is wi-fi equipped and features 12 first-class seats, 16 economy plus seats, and 48 standard economy seats.

The addition is a result of United’s ambitious United Next plan and part of a larger United announcement of 35 new flights, a dozen new gates and three new clubs in Denver.

“We’re particularly pleased to bring this important non-stop destination to the Miami Valley, thanks in large part to the extensive collaboration between Dayton area community partners and United,” said United’s Managing Director of Domestic Planning, Mark J. Weithofer. “We look forward to continuing to work together as we connect Dayton to United’s global route network via our hub gateways in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and now Denver.”
