SLO-LAX flights return next week


United Airlines will resume flying between San Luis Obispo and Los Angeles International Airport on Nov. 1, a route that the airline put on hold early in the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are delighted to see this connectivity return,” San Luis Obispo County Director of Airports Courtney Johnson said in an Oct. 25 news release announcing the route’s planned resumption. “These convenient flights to LAX are resuming right as international travel is opening back up, and having twice-daily nonstop flights from SBP will make it easier for our community to reach their destination of choice — and avoid the inconvenient drive to LA.”

United Airlines will fly out of Santa Luis Obispo Regional Airport at 6 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. every day, and will leave from LAX for San Luis Obispo at 10:50 a.m. and 10:45 p.m. The flight takes about an hour going north to San Luis Obispo and an hour and 10 minutes going south to Los Angeles.

Tickets are on sale now for the flights, which will be on 50-seat Canadair Regional Jets.

With the resumption of this route, San Luis Obispo Regional Airport will have direct flights to Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, Denver and Dallas.
