“New Nonstop Service to Chicago”

Big Flats- At a press conference held today Chemung County Executive Tom Santulli and Ann Crook, Elmira Corning Regional Airport’s Director of Aviation, announced United Airlines will begin twice-daily United Express service to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD) beginning in February of 2014.

“Bringing nonstop flights to Chicago from ELM is great news for our business community who have been requesting this service for quite a while,” said Santulli. “Chicago is a key destination for many local companies and O’Hare is one of the country’s largest hubs offering business, as well as leisure travelers, connections to more than 160 destinations in United’s global route network.”

“This is the result of years of discussion with United and we are very glad it has come to fruition,” said Ann Crook.  “I would like to thank our business partners for providing support and incentives which will boost economic development efforts for the entire region.”

The non-stop daily United Express service from ORD to ELM will be operated by ExpressJet using  50-seat regional jet aircraft and will begin on February 13, 2014. Flights will depart Elmira at 6:15 am  and 5:30 pm, with return service from Chicago at 2:15 pm and 9 pm daily. Tickets are available for purchase now at

This service would not be possible without the assistance of our partners; Chemung County, Steuben County, Chemung County IDA, Southern Tier Economic Growth, Steuben County IDA, Chemung County Chamber of Commerce and Three Rivers Development Foundation.
