Some United Airlines customers traveling to and from Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport next year will travel on the airline’s Bombardier CRJ-550 — a 50-seat aircraft featuring more legroom, storage and amenities than other regional aircraft flying today.
United will begin offering flights on the CRJ-550 to its New York/Newark hub beginning March 5, making Greenville-Spartanburg one of the first airports to offer service on the aircraft, according to a news release.
The CRJ-550 is the world’s only 50-seat regional jet to offer “true first-class seating and other premium amenities,” including space for every customer to take a roller bag on board, a self-serve refreshment center and the ability to allow passengers to stay connected to Wi-Fi while in flight, the release said.
Tickets for flights aboard the CRJ-550 between GSP and New York/Newark are available now at United’s website. United offers a total of 13 daily departures from GSP, including flights to hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston and Washington-Dulles.
