ExpressJet Airlines is beginning new non-stop service from Tucson to five cities this month, beginning with Ontario, California and Kansas City today.

Airport officials and local leaders say the new flights will make traveling much easier to and from Tucson while increasing tourism and business opportunities. Later this month, ExpressJet will add Sacramento, CA and Austin and San Antonio, Texas as new non-stop destinations.

The company operates nearly 300 aircraft for other carriers including Continental Express for Continental Airlines.
