United Airlines said it would fly 60% of its flights in June compared to its June 2019 schedule.

The Chicago-based airline will add more than 480 daily domestic flights to its schedule, which translates into operating over 3,100 daily domestic flights.  The increase means that United will operate 67% of its domestic schedule when compared with June 2019.

The carrier will add new flights to Alaska, Hawaii, and Montana, among other destinations.

In addition, the airline is concentrating on adding leisure destinations such as flights to airports near national parks.

“As leisure travel continues to return this summer, we are adding more flights to our June schedule to national parks, Alaska, Hawaii, Florida and other popular destinations,” said Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of domestic planning.

The airline will introduce new service between Fairbanks and Anchorage in June and restart service linking Chicago to Fairbanks and Houston, and New York and San Francisco to Anchorage.
