Beginning on 4th October the people of Monterey, California will be welcoming a new direct United Airlines flight service from Denver. 

Known for its scenic beauty and picturesque coastline, Monterey County, California draws millions of visitors each year and is now planning on welcoming a greater number of visitors from the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. The new route will offer visitors nearly 100 connection opportunities to key domestic and international destinations throughout the country. With two daily flights, passengers will be able to travel seamlessly between California's golden coast and the "Mile High City."

"The launch of United's non-stop flight from Denver is a tremendous opportunity to grow tourism and welcome new visitors to the Monterey region," says Tammy Blount-Canavan, President & CEO, Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau. "Now more than ever, Monterey County is positioned as an easily accessible destination for both business and leisure travellers from across the country and all over the world."

"United is excited to begin Monterey-Denver service, connecting this beautiful part of the world with our expansive domestic and international network from Denver," said Janet Lamkin, United President, California. "As California's global airline, United is committed to bringing more people to California, and to connecting Californians to the world."

The 50-seat regional jet aircraft will depart twice daily from Denver at 11:16AM and 7:00PM and arrive in Monterey at 1:17PM and 9:01PM respectively. Return flights depart at 7:38AM and 1:03PM from Monterey, arriving in Denver at 11:20AM and 4:45PM.

We are particularly excited that the new direct flight from Denver further opens up Monterey County to the East Coast, and allows us to introduce California's golden coast to prospective meetings and group business in the Eastern United States," says Mark McMinn, Vice President of Group Sales and Services, Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
