Travelers flying from Modesto to San Francisco will have more options on the weekend beginning June 5.
SkyWest Airlines, which operates the United Express flights, will add one round-trip flight on Saturday and another on Sunday. That increases the number of round trips to four on Saturday and five on Sunday.
There are five round trips Monday through Friday. "We see historically a growth in air traffic during summer months. June, July and August typically are our busiest times," said Jerome Thiele, Modesto's airport manager. He advised travelers to make reservations at least three weeks in advance and consider flying Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to lock in the lowest prices.
For flight information, call United Airlines at 800-241-6522 or go to www.united.com. SkyWest Airlines' local number is 526-3108.
