The Fly Sun Valley Alliance announced it is adding another direct flight to the mountain resort town: Chicago. 

The flights will begin this winter, putting the SUN airport near Hailey two hours away from Chicago. United Airlines will fly the route, opening up the airport to its seventh destination - including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, Portland and Salt Lake City.

The Chicago route will be longest roundtrip into SUN - and opens up the tourist destination to United's hub in the city, adding dozens of east coast cities on a one-stop basis. It will operate on ten Saturdays this winter: December 23, December 30, January 6, February 17, February 24, March 3, March 10, March 17, March 24 and March 31.
