Winter sports lovers from Denver, Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco (SFO), listen up! You’re about to have a new option for flying into the Mammoth/Yosemite area.
Starting on December 16, 2021, you can hop a flight to this new destination for United. The seasonal service is a new route for the airline, which suspended flights to Mammoth/Yosemite airport (MMH). That airport will no longer support commercial service.
The new service will be to the Eastern Sierra Regional Airport near Bishop (BIH), California and features daily flights from the three United hubs throughout the busy winter season. You can book your flights to Bishop right here on CheapAir.com through March 26, 2022.
Mammoth is about an hour’s drive from the Bishop-area airport, with car rental services currently a few miles off-premises. That may change with the influx of flights and passengers.
The new flights will be operated by United’s partner SkyWest Airlines, on 70-seat CRJ-700 regional jets.
Read more about other smaller, airports being serviced by new airlines like Breeze and Avelo. You can also expect to see additional routes to destinations for lovers of the outdoors, a strategy adopted by United and other airlines in the wake of the 2020 pandemic.
What do you think? Are you likely to take advantage of the new route? Let us know other ski areas you’d like to see supported by United or other domestic airlines. Happy travels!
