Direct Chicago flights are back

MOBILE, Ala. -- Mobile now has direct daily flights to Chicago’s O'Hare International Airport after a 10-year absence. The first flight from Mobile Regional Airport was Tuesday. "United Airlines is one of our longest airline partnerships, and this will greatly improve our connectivity to the west, north, northeast and even international destinations," said Patricia G. Edington, secretary of the Mobile Airport Authority. Bill Sisson, the authority’s executive director, called United's decision to resume daily, nonstop service between Mobile and Chicago is "timely" in light of Monday's groundbreaking for a $600 million Airbus assembly line.
