United ending service from Manchester, NH, to Chicago

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — United Airlines plans to end flights from Manchester, New Hampshire, to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport later this summer.

United tells WMUR-TV that the service will end on Sept. 5, but United will continue flights from Manchester to Newark, New Jersey.

A United statement said customers who already booked flights to Chicago after Sept. 5 will be provided with alternate arrangements or a refund.

Manchester-Boston Deputy Airport Director Thomas Malafronte said he’s working with several air carriers “who can step in to fill the void.”
