REDMOND, Ore. -

Effective Tuesday, United Airlines again will provide another flight option between Redmond and Denver to accommodate increased travel demands expected during the summer months, officials said.

The airline will be operating a CRJ-200 aircraft with the capacity to seat 50 passengers. The aircraft will be utilized on the early-morning departure flights.

United Airlines is currently accepting reservations for this new flight option for eastbound passengers.

It's the third summer United has added a second daily flight to Denver to accommodate the extra travelers, airport officials said

As passenger traffic through Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) increases during the summer months, travelers are encouraged to arrive early.  Here are some suggested travel tips to prepare for the busy travel season.
