Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) announced today that passengers can now fly to Los Angeles 6 times a day on
United Airlines aboard a 50 seat Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ). United replaced their Embraer-120 (EMB-120)
turbo-prop aircraft used for the Los Angeles route, for the larger, quieter regional jet.
United also replaced 2 of the 9 non-stop flights to San Francisco with a 50 seat CRJ and 70 seat CRJ with
First Class seating. The other 7 flights will remain aboard the EMB-120.
Hazel Johns, Airport Director said: "We know that Santa Barbara travelers can support the enhanced service
and take advantage of the key connections to many domestic and international destinations from Los
Angeles and San Francisco. We want the improved service to be successful for United and the community."
United Airlines flies non-stop from the Santa Barbara Airport to Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) is a self-supporting enterprise owned and operated by the City of Santa
Barbara, serving over 710,000 passengers annually.
