United adds flights to Chicago and Milwaukee ahead of conventions

United Airlines will increase the number of flights to Chicago and Milwaukee as both the Democratic National Convention and Republican National Convention approach, it announced Tuesday.

The airline said it would increase flight options, making it easier for “congressional attendees and political enthusiasts” to travel.

United said it is increasing flight capacity by more than 75 percent, or 72 flights, for the Republican National Committee (RNC) convention.

It also added a new nonstop flight between Milwaukee and Washington, DC, and new flights from other major hubs such as Denver, New York and Chicago.

The airline said it would fly its largest flight since 2019 to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and is increasing its flights between Washington and Chicago by 40 percent for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) convention.

The RNC convention kicks off on July 15 in Milwaukee.

Former President Trump is expected to be named as the Republicans' official 2024 presidential nominee at the convention and said he would announce his running mate there.

The New York judge overseeing Trump's criminal hush-money trial has set his sentencing date for July 11, just days before he appears in Milwaukee.

The DNC convention begins on August 19 in Chicago.

President Biden will join Vice President Harris in securing the Democratic Party's official presidential nomination.

“These conventions are steeped in tradition and have now evolved into a weeklong celebration of our political process,” said Patrick Quayle, United's Senior Vice President of Global Network Planning and Alliances, in a statement. “We are proud to offer even more opportunities for people to visit two great cities, participate in these historic events and make their voices heard.”
