United Now Flying All Up In the "Prairie Lands"
You know it's spring when... major airlines add new routes to previously snowed-in cities, who are just now thawing out enough to receive a fresh wave of air traffic. Of course we are talking about random Canada, Saskatchewan in particular, which will welcome Delta SkyWest jets from June 4 on through the summer, with one flight each way daily out of Chicago O'Hare, adding to its current service from Denver.
Saskatoon won't be the only "prairie" airport to see some daily United action; more flights from Chicago are scheduled to begin running to Bismarck, North Dakota, effectively putting a kibosh on Amtrak's dominance of the grueling route (which even requires a bus, if you're up to it). Perhaps when the temperatures approach egg-sizzling levels in the city this summer, we could be tempted to escape to the cool forests of North Dakota or Saskatchewan, but that's only if United can keep the routes up and running until the snows descend again next winter.
