Traverse City, MI (PRWEB) February 27, 2013

Starting July 5, United Airlines will offer seasonal service between Newark’s Liberty International Airport and Traverse City’s Cherry Capital Airport.

“United is pleased to offer the first-ever service between Traverse City and our New York hub at Newark Liberty,” said Evan Koppel, United’s director of sales for the Great Lakes region. “The flights will not only offer convenient travel options between the New York area and northern Michigan, but … will provide connections to other destinations in United’s global route network.”

Traverse City already has summer service to New York via American and Delta, but Newark is United’s New York area hub, and the new service will expand travelers’ options from other East Coast and international destinations. United also offers nonstop service from TVC to its hubs in Chicago and Denver; making connections to every corner of the globe easy, most with just one stop.

“This enhanced service continues to show the commitment on behalf of United in growing our service,” said airport Director Kevin Klein. “Now it is our job as a community to promote, use and support the service.”

A small coastal resort area on the northwest coast of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, Traverse City has long been treasured by Michigan residents for its matchless scenery, colorful history, imaginative cuisine and laid-back friendliness, as well as the low humidity, warm sunshine and cool coastal breezes that make its summers so comfortable. Until recently it has remained relatively unknown outside the state, but word has been spreading quickly during the past few years.

In the past year, National Geographic has named Traverse City one of its Top 10 Summer Trips for 2012, while the Travel Channel ranked it among the Top Seven Beer Destinations in North America, Budget Travel called it one of the 11 “Coolest Winter Places in America,” and Money Magazine ranked it among the Top 25 Best Cities to Retire. In January the online travel site Away.com named Traverse City to its list of ten “Best Four-Day Vacation Spots” for 2013, joining such destinations as Oaxaca, Palm Springs and Washington’s Olympic National Park.
