One of WINGSPAN’S core goals is to increase capacity and efficiency for GSP customers. With WINGSPAN renovations coming to an end soon, we are already starting to see an increase in capacity with the addition of three American Airline flights between Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
Beginning July 5, the airline will depart GSP for non-stop service to Chicago at 8:10 a.m., 10:05 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. Currently, United Airlines provides six non-stop flights from GSP to O’Hare at various times and days. The added routes to Chicago brings the number of daily departures from GSP to around 50.
“It opens up the rest of the American network to Upstate travelers,” said Rosylin Westin, Vice President of Communications relations at GSP. “It will give them the opportunity to connect with international flights like London-Heathrow and Madrid, as well as flights in the continental United States. People talk about growth and think it only means the airport is growing if there is an announcement of a new airline coming in,” Westin said. “But that growth can also mean an existing airline beefing up its current service.”
We are excited about this airline expansion and future growth at GSP!
