TULSA, OK -- United Airlines will reinstate its daily non-stop flight between Tulsa and Los Angeles on June 4.

"The travel needs of Tulsans continue to grow along with the development of our business community and our city's growing role as an entertainment venue," said Mayor Kathy Taylor. "United's reinstatement of their non-stop flight to L.A. is proof that Tulsa's energy is heading in the right direction. Let's all work to use and promote this additional flight from Tulsa."
