United Airlines launches new Basic Economy fare for twin cities travel

United Airlines costumers purchasing tickets for travel between Minneapolis/St. Paul and any of United's seven U.S. hubs (Chicago O'Hare, Denver, Houston Bush International, Los Angeles, New York/Newark, San Francisco and Washington Dulles) have an additional fare option to choose from – Basic Economy.

Intended to be United's lowest fare, Basic Economy fares provide most of the same inflight services and amenities that are available with standard Economy — such as food and beverages, United Wi-FiSM and inflight entertainment, along with a few important restrictions which are detailed below.

To ensure a smooth rollout, Basic Economy fares will first be offered in just one market, Minneapolis, to and from domestic hubs before expanding to the rest of the U.S., Caribbean and short-haul Latin America.
