United commits to 2020

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. — United Airlines has committed to offering service for several more years at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP). The Airport Authority board on Wednesday morning approved an airline-airport use and lease agreement with United Airlines. A representative of United Airlines, which has served the airport since March 2015, has advised airport officials the company intends to sign the agreement in the next 45 days, airport officials said. The agreement expires Sept. 30, 2020, but United already is discussing a new agreement once that time comes, airport Executive Director Parker McClellan told the board. There are four major carriers at the airport: American, Delta, Southwest and United. (Source: News Herald, 03/28/18)
