United Airlines Holdings UAL plans to operate its biggest domestic schedule since the start of the pandemic last March, in order to cater to the anticipated surge in holiday travel.

This December, the airline plans to offer more than 3,500 daily domestic flights, which is equivalent to 91% of its 2019 domestic capacity. The carrier said that its data reflects pent-up demand for holiday travel. The number of people searching for holiday travel flights on united.com and the airline's app are up 16%, compared to 2019.

United Airlines’ December schedule will focus on connecting the Midwest with warm weather cities like Las Vegas and Orlando, FL. The airline will also offer about 70 daily flights to ski destinations, including new service between Orange County, CA and Aspen, CO.
