United Adds New Flights Into Sun Valley
Hailey, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT0TV ) United Airlines is expanding its service as it has added a direct flight from Denver to Sun Valley.
Wednesday night the first flight touched down in Hailey just after eight o'clock in the evening.
Travelers from Denver were greeted in the terminal with a Sun Valley swag bag, cake and champagne.
One passenger said he had been traveling from Pittsburgh for thirty years, and this flight cuts his 15 hour travel to 5 hours.
Blain County Commissioner Larry Schoen says,
"This type of service direct, Denver Sun Valley and everywhere else that connects directly to Denver to Sun Valley is going to have an impact on the entire Magic Valley economy."
The direct flight from Denver will run through September and possibly longer if sales look good.
