United to offer summer Rapid City-Houston flights

RAPID CITY (AP) -- United Airlines will offer seasonal flights between Rapid City and Houston this summer.

Rapid City airport officials say the nonstop round-trip daily flights are to begin June 7 and continue through Aug 27. Houston will become the eighth nonstop destination served by the Rapid City airport.

United already offers Rapid City flights to Denver and Chicago year-round. The seasonal Houston flights will be operated as United Express by ExpressJet, using 50-seat planes. Rapid City Mayor Sam Kooiker says he hopes the flights eventually will be offered year-round.
