INDIANAPOLIS -

The executive director of Indianapolis International Airport calls another daily flight to San Francisco International Airport "a big win." Mario Rodriguez says business travelers, in particular, benefit from United Airlines' expanded service. He adds "it further supports the connection between the Indianapolis and Silicon Valley tech communities, and opens the door for more people to travel to the West Coast daily out of Indy for both business and leisure."

United has two daily flights to SFO and Alaska Airlines will also launch daily service to the Bay Area city September 26. The other current daily route to San Francisco was secured by IND four years ago and officials say the additional flight is proof it's been a "growing success."

United's second daily flight is the latest in a string of new and expanded options from multiple carriers to destinations out West, including Seattle-Tacoma with Alaska Airlines, Austin and Phoenix with Allegiant Air, San Diego with Southwest Airlines and additional Las Vegas flights from Frontier Airlines.

United Vice President of Sales Jake Cefolia says the IND to SFO flights offer "more opportunities to connect to the world." He adds "this second daily flight to San Francisco gives customers more options to connect to destinations across the Western United States and beyond including Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong and China." Additional connections include Tokyo and Seoul and officials say it will cut five hours off current connection time.
