The City of Redding and United Airlines announced a new, non-stop flight from Redding Municipal Airport (RDD) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) beginning March 8, 2019.
The new flights to Los Angeles will run seven days a week, with connections available to destinations nationwide, as well as international connections. The new flight is scheduled to depart LAX daily at 7:10 p.m. and arrive at RDD at 9:25 p.m. This flight will remain overnight and will depart RDD the following morning at 6:45 a.m., arriving at LAX at 8:35 a.m. United will operate a 50-seat Canadair Regional Jet CRJ-200 on the new route with low introductory fares as well as travel bundles for affordable air travel options.
“This is great news,” said Redding Mayor Kristen Schreder. “United Airlines’ decision to introduce a new, non-stop flight will open more opportunities for leisure and business travel, which is something the local community has told us they wanted as a first priority for expanding service.”
“We are thrilled to announce new service between Redding and Los Angeles,” said Janet Lamkin, United Airlines California president. “This new flight connects business and leisure travelers in Redding to our global network from Los Angeles, and will bring more travelers to Northern California. United is California’s global airline, connecting California to the world, and bringing the world to California.”
