“For more than 30 years, United Airlines has helped connect Dayton to the world,” said Michael Quiello, United’s vice president of Corporate Safety. “We are excited to announce another new choice for our customers traveling to Houston and connecting to key destinations.”

It’s been a year of changes for the Dayton International Airport — from fluctuating passenger traffic to new, discount flight destinations and a mix-up in air carriers.

In June 2016, Southwest Airlines halted service at the Dayton airport in favor of adding flights at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The move impacted the Dayton airport’s traffic numbers and average fare prices.
