United Airlines will no longer offer direct flights between Eugene and Los Angeles or Chicago, according to a news report.
The Chicago-based carrier is cutting 12 routes and pulling out of four US cities, The Points Guy reported Friday.
The cut routes in Oregon include non-stop flights between:
- Eugene and Los Angeles International Airport
- Eugene and O’Hare International Airport in Chicago
- Medford and LAX
Service between Eugene and Chicago, which started in June 2019, already had been suspended. Many of the other routes United is cutting also had been suspended because of lower demand due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Points Guy reported, but the carrier had planned to bring them back.
United started offering nonstop flights between Los Angeles and Eugene in March 2019 and had not suspended those flights before the announcement of the cut.
