Hoosiers now have access to nonstop air service to San Francisco.
United Air Lines will soon begin offering the flight. Governor Mike Pence says he had heard from many business owners telling him how important the flight would be to Indiana.
Pence says Secretary of Commerce Victor Smith led a collaborative effort to pursue the nonstop route. Mayor Greg Ballard this flight has been a long time coming.
Exact Target CEO Scott Dorsey says the flight is a “gamechanger” for Indiana‘s tech sector. Dorsey says the flight will lead to more venture investment, board seats, mentorships and strategic partnerships.
The flight will leave Indy at 8am, and arrive in San Francisco at 10am. The return flight will depart San Francisco at 1:35pm, and arrive in Indy at 8:51pm. The new service will begin on January 7th.
