United looks forward to continuing our service between San Francisco and Bishop, California which began last December and gives customers access to Mammoth Lakes,” said Lori Augustine, vice president of San Francisco for United. “Extending this service will give our customers convenient access to the beautiful summer in Mammoth Lakes, which will draw not just Bay Area visitors, but travelers from the 65 U.S. destinations that United will serve from SFO this summer.”
