The Muskegon County Airport has received great news from United Airlines. Starting October 2, the weekday morning flight schedule (Monday through Friday) changed to provide an earlier departure time of 10:05 AM rather than 11:35 AM. This allows customers better opportunities to make connecting flights earlier in the day.
“We are extremely pleased to announce this weekday schedule change. The Airport has worked with United Airlines for years to offer an earlier flight.” said Jeffrey Tripp, Airport Manager. “Travelers to and from the West Michigan Shoreline region rely on Muskegon County Airport for dependable transportation; flight connectivity and price are a crucial part of these efforts. The more customers fly Muskegon, the better able we are to leverage our passenger numbers for additional flight options and service with the airline.”
The new schedule provides improved opportunities for same day business trips to East and West Coast destinations and to the lakeshore. The Airport continues to work with United Airlines to provide flights at competitive rates, with quality terminal facilities, outstanding customer service, and schedule modifications to maximize flight connection opportunities.
