REDDING, Calif. – Flights from the Redding Airport to Southern California may be returning.

Representatives announced Wednesday evening that flights to and from Los Angeles are expected to return on March 4, 2021. Redding continues to offer one flight a day to San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

The United Airlines route had been discontinued last March, partly due to the impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The return of this flight signals a shift in perspective and opportunity, likely based on the anticipation that travel will begin to resume again now that a COVID-19 vaccine is soon to become available to the general public.

Flights to Denver, Colorado have been on the Redding community’s radar for more than two decades, representatives with the city of Redding said.

Later this month, The city will apply for a Small Community Air Service Development Program Grant in hopes of securing air service to other high-priority destinations, including Denver. The Denver route could then become available as soon as Spring of 2022.

Passengers should still limit non-essential travel, refrain from traveling while sick, and adhere to all health and safety protocols in place at RDD. The airport is following strict safety and sanitization protocols, like offering hand sanitizing stations and allowing plenty of space for social distancing.
